Our veterinarians have the experience and drive to provide pets in and around Canyon Lake with the best pet care available. One of the most important aspects of caring for animals is regular pet dental services. Many people think pet dental care is difficult or unnecessary, but neither is true. Our veterinarians are highly skilled at providing pet dental care that keeps your pet comfortable.
Scale and Polish
A scale and polish is the process of descaling and polishing your pet’s teeth. This involves putting your pet under a general anesthetic to keep it still and calm throughout the process. Plaque and tartar are removed from your pet’s teeth with descaling equipment. The surface of the teeth is then polished with a specialized tool used to smooth out rough spots on your pet’s teeth. This helps prevent plaque buildup in the future while giving your pet’s teeth a healthy shine.
Does Your Pet Need It?
If your pet has any reddening around the edges of his gums or any chalky buildup on his teeth, a scale and polish can help. It can be difficult to assess your pet’s oral health by yourself, so having a veterinarian perform a checkup is the best course of action. We can spot what the untrained eye has difficulty picking out.
Quick and Easy
Most scale and polish procedures take up to 40 minutes. This can be less or more depending on how much descaling needs to be done. Additionally, any tooth extractions or other serious dental issues that are discovered can add to the length of the procedure. However, the procedure itself is usually quite brief.
