Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet’s health. Infections are more common in the mouth because they can go undetected for long periods of time. At Greenwood Village Veterinary Clinic, we regularly perform oral exams, cleanings, and periodontal care as part of our comprehensive health care goals. General anesthesia is necessary to provide comfort for your pet as well as allow us to be able to thoroughly clean the teeth and perform scaling under the gum lines. Anesthesia–free dental cleanings are not capable of performing this.
Your pet’s dental prophylaxis includes:
- Oral examinations under anesthesia
- Diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease
- Subgingival and ultrasonic scaling
- Tooth extractions when needed.
- Fluoride application
We chart your pet’s teeth at every cleaning.
If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Please call us at (303) 771-6304 today to learn more and schedule your pet’s dental cleaning.
