Our Dental Clean Services

We offer thorough dental cleaning services that include:

  • Pre-Dental Examination: A comprehensive oral exam to assess your pet’s dental health and identify any issues.
  • Scaling and Polishing: Removal of plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth. This is then folllowed by polishing to smooth the tooth surface and discourage further plaque formation.
  • Dental X-Rays: Advanced imaging to evaluate the health of the teeth and jaw below the gum line. This helps identifying any hidden problems.
  • Extractions if Necessary: In cases where a tooth is severely damaged and beyond repair, we can perform extractions to prevent further pain and infection.
  • Personalised Dental Care Plan: After the cleaning, we’ll provide recommendations for at-home dental care and schedule follow-up visits as needed.

Additionally, our team uses state-of-the-art dental equipment and follows strict protocols to ensure your pet’s dental procedure is safe, effective, and as comfortable as possible.
