We use a human piezo-electric dental scaler that allows us to clean teeth thoroughly and efficiently. The various tips allow for removal of large amounts of tartar as well as more delicate cleaning below the gum margin.
Our dental table includes both high- and low-speed drills.
All of our surgical equipment is steam sterilized for each patient.
Anesthesia is an area of concern for most pet owners. We examine your pet and his or her medical history to develop a protocol specifically for them.
We use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment that includes ECG, Oxygen saturation of the blood, Carbon Dioxide levels, Blood Pressure and Temperature.
Katie, our Registered Veterinary Technician, has extensive experience monitoring patients under anesthesia.
We also have a warm water bed, a warm air-filled blanket and warm intravenous fluid line to maintain body temperature and keep your pet comfortable.
Inside the mouth, we utilize lidocaine gel along the gum margin and local anesthetic blocks to reduce pain and allow us to keep our general anesthesia level as low as possible.
Your pet's safety and comfort are paramount to us.
Extractions are another area of concern for pet owners. We try and keep as many teeth in your pet's mouth as possible.
When extractions are necessary, we perform surgical extractions that result in less trauma and faster healing. We then close the opening with absorbable sutures.
Katie, Beth and Dr. Lynn are passionate about their patients and their teeth!
We work with you, as a team, to provide quality dental care for your pet.
