An annual veterinary dental cleaning is recommend for all cats and dogs. In certain cases or depending on the condition of your pet’s mouth, the pet may require cleanings on a more frequent basis.
A professional veterinary dental cleaning at Eastside Veterinary Dentistry includes an oral examination, ultrasonic scaling of the teeth, polishing of the teeth, full mouth charting, OraVet (plaque repellent) application and digital dental x-rays if needed.
In addition to a yearly veterinary dental cleaning, routine home tooth brushing is the mainstay of pet oral health. During your cleaning appointment, our staff will be happy to have a one-on-one demonstration with you to assist with your success in your pet’s at home dental care. We recommend tooth brushing with toothpaste made specifically for pets, Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) approved treats and OraVet home care kits.
