Our dental services include professional teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions, periodontal treatments, and oral surgery.
Dental procedures at SPVH are only performed by properly trained and qualified personnel.
Effective professional dental care in animals requires general anesthesia. When the proper precautions and protocols are followed, anesthesia is very safe.
In contrast, avoiding professional cleaning and allowing dental and periodontal disease to progress can cause life-threatening, life-shortening, conditions such as heart failure, kidney failure, and predisposition to blood clots (thromboembolism).
Watch the video below to learn why dental procedures should only be performed by trained professionals and only under anesthesia.
