Dental Surgery

What is dental surgery?

Dental surgery for your pet may sound a bit intense or scary, but it is actually quite a common procedure that is vital to your pet’s health. Dental surgeries are an opportuntiy for your vet to properly clean your pet’s teeth, find loose, cracked, or broken teeth that may be painful for your pet, take X-rays of their mouth to evaluate their jaw bone health, and check for periodontal disease that can lead to major health issues. Yes, a lot happens while they are in there!

Dental Surgery

Why is it important?

Although your vet may be able to make observations and hypotheses of your pet’s dental health just with a quick check in their mouth, it is often impossible to know exactly what your pet will need until the doctor gets a good look inside. You can expect a full cleaning and tooth & gum inspection, possible periodontal diagnosis, and possible tooth extractions.

Please note that anesthesia is needed to perform a proper dental surgery! Anesthesia makes it possible to perform the dental procedures with less stress and pain for your pet. In addition, anesthesia allows for a better cleaning because your pet is not moving around and risking injury from sharp dental equipment. Plus, it is quite hard to take X-ray photos of your pet’s mouth without them moving!

Dental Surgery

What will the procedure include?

Dental surgery will include anesthesia for your pet, a full inspection of their mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw, and X-rays of their jaw bone and teeth. From here, our vets will analyze what needs to be done, and give you, the pet parent, a call to diagnose what further procedures are needed,  answer any questions or concerns, give a breakdown of the cost, and get the green light to proceed. Please note our team will never perform any further surgical procedures without a parent’s consent. Once done, your pet will spend some time recovering from the anesthesia in the clinic, and be ready to rest at home by the end of the day.
