Frequently Asked Questions
So what does a dental clean involve?
When you go to the dentist, that noisy ultrasonic scaler your dentist uses chips off any build-up of tartar and calculus on your teeth. Your dentist then probes around the teeth, records any damage to the teeth and x-rays any questionable teeth. You then get a nice polish to smooth out the tooth surface and restore that nice resistant enamel. This is exactly what vets do to clean your dog or cat’s teeth, only it all has to be done under a short anaesthetic, otherwise we can’t see all the teeth (and we might lose a few fingers in the process!).
How often should my pet’s teeth be cleaned?
Regular cleaning of your dog or cat’s teeth combined with yearly dental check-ups are a vital part of ensuring your furry friend is happy and healthy. Luckily, at Love That Pet North Ryde, we are one of Sydney’s leading pet dental experts for cats and dogs.
We recommend a dental cleaning be done every 6-12 months, although it depends on the pet, so regular check-ups are important (just like a human dentist). Regular cleaning of your cat or dog’s teeth also helps prevent serious problems from developing over time, our nurses will coach you on this as part of your scale and polish package. There is nothing worse than having to extract teeth every time you do a dental. The whole process is so much simpler and nicer when it really is just a scale and polish.
Why would my pet need to have teeth removed?
Pets that have significant dental disease have severe damage to the gum and the ligaments holding the tooth in place. Those teeth are painful, infected and at risk of forming an abscess. Unfortunately, once the gum and tooth are severely damaged, there is no way to reverse the disease and repair the tooth. Usually, pets with significant dental disease need to have multiple extractions to remove infection and stop severe pain. At Love That Pet we do everything to make sure this is as painless as possible, using nerve blocks, pain relief injections and tablets to go home with.
