Performing routine dental prophylactic cleanings help prevent the development of dental disease that can lead to pain and affect overall health. This consists of placing the pet under anesthesia and using an ultrasonic scaler to clean the teeth and then polish.
If mobility, pocketing, or root exposure is noticed our doctors may recommend dental x-rays and extractions, as these can indicate an unhealthy tooth.
To ensure maximum oral health we also recommend you begin one or more of the following:
- Brushing with soft bristle toothbrush and enzymatic toothpaste every 1-3 days.
- Oral Rinsing with Chlorhexidine solutions (C.E.T. Rinse) is acceptable, although not as effective as brushing.
- CET Aquadent added to the drinking water daily is formulated to freshen your pet’s breath and prevent plaque accumulation when used in conjunction with a regular home dental care program.
- CET dental chews have been formulated and tested to help decrease the accumulation of plaque on your pet’s teeth.
