Firstly, we recommend you should have your pet's teeth examined by one of our veterinarians or vet nurses every 6 months. We can identify the severity of their dental disease and make a recommendation for treatment.
Your pet may need several dental procedures throughout their life. Pets should always be anaesthetised to carry out a thorough dental examination, and to clean all teeth without distressing them. Once anaesthetised, a complete dental examination is carried out. This process involves charting all present teeth and evaluating their condition, including the degree of tartar, gingivitis (gum inflammation) and any pockets in the gums around the teeth.
