The Role Of Anesthesia In A Pet Dental Exam
By now, most of us understand the importance of good dental care for ourselves. We see the dentist twice per year, brush and (hopefully) floss daily, and follow our dentist’s recommendations for follow up care. Taking care of our pet’s teeth is just as important, and neglecting this area of wellness can lead to a host of health problems for pets.
We generally recommend a yearly pet dental exam and cleaning for our patients to remove plaque and tartar buildup, check for and correct underlying problems, and to aid in the prevention of dental disease.
