How do I know if my pet needs a dental cleaning?
Examine your pet’s teeth regularly for signs of periodontal disease, such as brownish colored teeth; swollen, red, or bleeding gums; persistent bad breath; loose or loss of teeth; pus between the gums and teeth; broken teeth and any unusual growth in the mouth. If you’ve noticed that your pet is reluctant to eat, play with chew toys, or drink cold water, these may be warning signs of dental issues. Please make an appointment to have your pet seen for a dental exam at PAWS Atlanta.
What happens during a dental cleaning?
The animal is sedated under general anesthesia throughout the entire procedure. An ultra-sonic scaler is used to remove tartar from the teeth and gum line. Once cleaned, the teeth are polished with a fluoride paste. This is important because polishing smooths out the teeth’s surface which will stop rapid accumulation of tartar in the future. If needed loose, broken or rotten teeth are extracted.
