Natural Pet Dental’s 7 step Non-Anesthesia Dental Procedure:
- Oral examination on the animal. We check for swellings and painful areas. We open and close the mouth to check for pain. We examine each tooth and note any calculus and inflammation. Any inflammation, recession or loose teeth are brought to the attention of the owner and doctor.
- Heavy and light deposits are removed from buccal, lingual, and interproximal surfaces of the teeth.
- Subgingival (slightly below the gum line) scaling.
- Probing and charting.
- We consult with the Veterinarian who determines the individual pet dental needs such as antibiotics. We then explain the importance of daily at home tooth brushing and try to get the pet on a maintenance program if the pet needs this service.
