Until recently, veterinary patients have had a limited range of dental treatments available to them. While scaling and polishing (professional cleaning) and extraction of unhealthy teeth are still the most common procedures performed, we now offer advanced options for treating disease and saving teeth. These are especially worth considering for working or show animals or those that rely on their teeth for sport or play, emphasizing the significance of regular dog teeth cleaning.
In some cases extractions are the best option, or cannot be avoided. There are also patients where full mouth extractions may be needed to regain a healthy, pain-free mouth. The thing to remember is that pets do absolutely fine without teeth (and many return to eating biscuits with gusto!) as long as they have you to do the ‘hunting’ for them.
Working With Your Vet
It is always best for us to work with your local vet as much as possible during the referral process. This involves your vet filling in a referral form that is found on the Vets section of this website. Working with Sydney Pet Dentistry and your vet ensures the best outcome for your pet, which is what everybody wants.
