APPOINTMENT

What is involved in a dental procedure?

A dental procedure is a day procedure in which your pet goes under a short general anaesthetic in order for us to clean and polish their teeth to remove any plaque and bacteria. It is similar to what humans have done at a dentist and the scaling and polish is not painful however does require a general anaesthetic.   

Our services provide full mouth examination including dental x-rays to ensure that your pet’s teeth are not only healthy on the outside but that the roots and surrounding bones are healthy too.

If your pet requires extractions we are fully equipped and trained in this field. Your pet will receive nerve blocks, pain relief prior to and after waking up and pain relief to go home with to ensure their recovery is smooth and comfortable and that your pet’s teeth are the healthiest they can be.

Behind the scenes during a dental procedure

What is dental disease?

Dental disease affects two-thirds of the pet population and easily goes unnoticed. Dental disease usually occurs when a build-up of bacteria causes plaque and gingivitis to our pet’s teeth which can be uncomfortable and painful.

Smelly breath, yellow/brown staining on the teeth and red inflamed gums are usually signs of dental disease and is an indication it is time for a dental check and possibly a dental clean.

To book your complementary dental check with one of our nurses.

Please call one of our nurses on 0411 052 779 and they will be able to book your pet’s surgical procedure. Our surgery days are Tuesdays and Thursdays however if needed we can sometimes operate on other days with enough notice or in emergency dental situations.
