Nohl Ranch Animal Hospital Dental Exam and treatment
When rough tartar accumulates on tooth surfaces and touches the gum line it’s time for a professional oral assessment, treatment, and prevention visit. This visit will include a thorough dental examination, teeth cleaning, and polishing to remove the tartar and invisible plaque from all the tooth surfaces.
For proper dental care, your dog will be placed under general anesthesia. Once your dog is under general anesthesia, Dr. Luke and our veterinary assistants will thoroughly examine the mouth, noting abnormalities in the medical record. A dental probe will be used to evaluate gum bleeding and periodontal pockets where food can accumulate if not cared for. Then we start the dental cleaning process.
In some cases, we would have to extract a bad tooth that cannot be possibly saved due to severe periodontal disease.
