Preventative Dental Care
Prevention is the key to ideal dental care, here at Animal Medical Centre South we have many tools to help you keep your pets teeth clean and healthy. We offer everything from toothpaste, water additives, enzymatic chews and even special dental diets.
Dental Examination and Cleanings.
Dental exams and cleanings are completed in clinic from Monday to Thursday. Completed under a full general anesthetic we are able to clean and examine both above and below the gumline. This level of sedation also allows us to complete full mouth x-rays, cleaning, and polishing. Every dental cleaning comes with a comprehensive home package to help you maintain optimal oral health.
Sometimes dental disease has progressed so far that extraction of the tooth is the best option. In order for us to decide if this is indeed the best option for your pet we refer to the physical examination of the tooth as well as the radiograph we took while completing the cleaning and examination. Every case is unique and our doctors and technicians will always keep you up to date when it comes to possible extractions required for your pet.
