Regular dental cleanings from your veterinarian and proper home dental care help prevent the development of dental diseases, reduces the need for extractions, and reduces the risk of periodontal-related health problems. My Pets Wellness offers the industry’s best dental tools and technologies to maintain your pet’s dental health at every life stage.
When was the last time your pet went to the dentist?

Disease and infection of the teeth and gums can lead to serious health consequences in vital organs like the heart, kidneys, & liver. They can also be extremely painful. Thankfully, most dental problems can be avoided by performing regular veterinary dental check-ups and dental cleanings!

On the day of your pet’s dental cleaning, the doctor will start by performing:
A full physical exam to evaluate your pet’s general health.
A blood panel to check blood cell counts and vital organ functions.
A complete blood chemistry profile to check vital organ function the day of the procedure.
After the exam & bloodwork, all pets will then receive:
Advanced anesthetic monitoring by a dedicated technician whose only job is to watch and record your pet’s vital signs while they are under anesthesia
A thorough dental cleaning using an ultrasonic scaler to clean away tartar both above and below the gumline, as well as a teeth polishing to create a smooth surface.
An oral exam using a periodontal probe to check for pockets along the gumline, enamel defects, furcation exposure, fractured/broken teeth, root exposure, loose/mobile teeth, and missing teeth.
An exam looking for evidence of tooth resorption, a painful condition in which the body breaks down its own teeth and turns them into bone.
If any dental abnormalities are noted in your pet’s mouth, a digital dental x-ray will then be taken. The doctor will then determine if any teeth need to be extracted.
If a dental extraction is deemed necessary, our team will provide the following:
A nerve block to prevent pain prior to the necessary oral surgery.
To avoid discomfort in the days following the extractions, patients will be sent home with pain medication.
