Dental Procedures

Our dental procedures include personalized anesthesia, manual monitoring and digital monitoring of heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature, oxygenation, blood pressure, and EKG.

All teeth are scaled with an ultrasonic cleaning tool, similar to what human dentists use. Extractions are made as needed due to exposed roots, and infected or broken teeth. Teeth are surgically extracted after applying a local pain block. Areas of extracted teeth are closed with absorbable suture. The teeth are then polished as a part of a typical dental cleaning. Appropriate pain medication is sent home, because pain management is of utmost importance at Advanced Veterinary Care.

Some dental cleanings will not require extractions. These will include ultrasonic scaling and polishing.
