Dental problems are very common in pets, and painful abscesses and extractions can often be avoided by preventative de-scaling with our ultrasound machine. When teeth are in need of extracting we have a range of specific dental surgical instruments and high-speed drills (very similar to those which you find in your own dentist) to make this process as quick and painless as possible.
Many breeds (Pugs, Poodles, Miniature Schnauzer, Boston Terriers, Jack Russell Terrier, Cocker Spaniel) are predisposed to dental tartar early in their life even if they are on dental prescription food or are taking dental treats. However, There is one single economic and effective way to prevent tartar build up. It is routine teeth brushing, this practice is the most effective in preventing dental disease and if we combine the prescription dental food and occasional dental treats we are going to prolong the intervals between dental cleanings.
