Over 70% of both cats and dogs will have some form of periodontal disease by age 3. Left untreated, periodontal disease is implicated in several serious conditions; including heart disease, kidney disease, liver dysfunction and a loss of bone density in addition to the actual loss of teeth.

Routine dental cleanings result in overall improved health for your pet. While under a light plane of anesthesia, your beloved friend has the plaque and tartar removed that causes foul breath. The scaling is done on all sides of the tooth and also below the gum line, so the entire tooth is addressed.

An air jet polish followed by a sub-gingival antibacterial periodontal treatment finishes off a thorough cleaning and helps retain teeth that would otherwise be in danger of being lost.

Finally, a coating of fluoride is placed on all teeth. Then the teeth are polished and a wax coating placed on the surface of the teeth to slow future buildup of plaque and tartar.
