Anesthesia is what often worries pet owners the most, however under the proper protocols anesthesia is very safe. Veterinarians will also use a local anesthetic in your dog or cat’s mouth during procedures. This allows the veterinarian to use less general anesthetic, thereby improving the safety of the anesthetic procedure and allowing your pet to recover more quickly and with less pain. While under anesthesia, a comprehensive veterinary dental cleaning will include the following, without any pain or discomfort to your pet: • A complete oral exam and radiographs (x-rays) to identify any problems beneath the gum-line. (This is similar to the x-rays you might receive from your own dentist.) Common painful problems that could be identified with radiographs are broken teeth and roots, periodontal disease, dead teeth, abscesses or infected teeth. • A full cleaning under the gum-line where periodontal disease lurks. It would be impossible to clean this area on an awake dog or cat, but this is where periodontal disease begins with bacteria ‘living’ below the gum tissue. • Professional scaling and polishing of the crown, or visible part of your dog or cat’s teeth. A veterinary cleaning does require scaling or scraping the tooth to remove plaque and calculus. Scaling is completed to remove plaque and tartar build-up on the tooth crown. Last, the teeth are polished leaving a completely smooth surface of the tooth which discourages plaque and bacteria from adhering to the rough tooth surface. When your pet is waking up from the procedure we sit with them until they have fully recovered and in most cases the patient goes home the same day. If they have extractions or severe dental disease they may need to go home with medications for a few days after the procedure. Most patients can eat and return to their normal routine almost immediately. Next time you are brushing your teeth just think about your pet. Remember that it’s easier and better on your pet to practice preventative health care rather than trying to reverse the consequences of periodontal disease after the damage has already been done. \ February 2018 71
