Dentistry

Dental prophylaxis or cleaning are routinely performed on a patient with an essentially healthy mouth. The intention is to prevent periodontitis (bone and tooth loss) as well as other common ailments of the mouth. A general anesethic is required to effectively and safely perform a proper dental cleaning.

Please call our office to address all of your pet’s oral health concerns. A healthy mouth is a happy pet!

Dental Prophylaxis at the Davenport Road Animal Hospital

  • Pre procedure antibiotics may be administered prior to the procedure to prevent the spread of bacteria through the bloodstream while the teeth are being cleaned.
  • A thorough physical and oral examination, electrocardiogram and bloodwork/urinalysis is done and a patient appropriate anesethic plan will be finalized by the veterinarian prior to being anesthetized.
  • All patients will receive i.v. fluids before, during and after the dental cleaning.
  • The patient is anesthetized and placed on a warming pad.
  • Dental radiographs may be performed.
  • Before cleaning begins the mouth is cleansed with a 0.2% Chlorahexadine solution to reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth.
  • The gums, teeth and roots are explored and any abnormalities will be charted.
  • The teeth are then scaled to remove visible calculus (tartar) and invisible plaque above and below the gum line.
  • Teeth are then polished using a special polishing paste.
  • Sub gingival irrigation is performed to remove debris and prophy paste.
  • A fluoride treatment is applied.
