Veterinary dental care is an important piece of your dog or cat’s preventive health care.
Most of the time brushing your pet’s teeth is not enough to maintain proper dental hygiene. If a pet’s mouth is left untreated, it can lead dental and systemic diseases. It is estimated that more than 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats develop tooth and gum disease by the age of three years old. If the bacterium from oral disease enters the bloodstream, it can greatly damage your pet’s kidneys, heart or liver.
We perform dental cleaning under isoflurane gas anesthesia. During the procedure, we use a special intubation tube with an inflatable cuff to keep scaling and other debris from entering your pet's lungs. Under anesthesia, our trained dental technicians are able to safely and throroughly clean above and below the gum line. Without anesthesia, we could not safely clean below the gum line nor could we prevent your pet from inhaling or swallowing the debris being cleaned off their teeth.
Compass Veterinary Clinic recommends that every pet have a Dental Prophylaxis once annually. A routine Dental Prophylaxis includes:
Oral Exam under Anesthesia
Supra and Sub Gingival Scaling
Electronic Patient Monitoring
Compass utilizes the Dentalaire Prestige, a high powered dental unit similar to what you might see in your Dentist's office. This new machine allows Compass Dental Techs to thoroughly clean your pet's teeth both above and below the gum line.
The Dentalaire Prestige is fast, allowing your Compass tech to significantly reduce your pet's time under anesthesia.
We are pleased to announce our new very straightforward promotional Dental Pricing.
