Dental Care Services in Corbin, KY
According to recent research, 70 percent of adult cats and 80 percent of adult dogs have oral disease. When your pet is coming in for a cleaning at Corbin Animal Clinic, safety is our top concern. As a result, we do pre-anesthetic blood testing on all of our patients before any dental treatment to ensure that they are healthy and free from underlying issues. We can then continue with the cleaning once the anesthesia has been administered.
What we do during dental cleanings:
- Cleanings and inspections: While your pet is under anesthesia, we will closely examine their teeth and gums.
- Following that, a professional will remove plaque and tartar from the teeth while looking for infection and gum disease signs. Teeth cleaning, fluoride treatment, and OraVet Plaque
- Prevention gel application are all basic cleanings.
- X-rays of the teeth may be required if advised. All cleanings do not necessitate x-rays owing to our client’s convenience.
- Sealants, also known as “sealant-bonded,” are another option for sealing your teeth. They provide further protection against bacteria build-up and tooth decay.
- Extractions: It concerns the extraction of decayed, loose, or broken teeth.
Caring for your pet’s teeth at home:
We are committed to raising public awareness about good oral health. We consider our clients to be family; therefore, we make caring for your pet’s teeth at home easier for you. As a result, after your pets’ visit, we offer doctor-suggested toothbrushes and toothpaste for at-home brushing for purchase in our office.
Brushing your teeth twice a day is recommended, but several brushings per week are believed to be just as effective in preventing plaque and bacteria that cause bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease. Ask us about water additives if you don’t want to brush your dog’s teeth with OraVet chews. Your veterinarian will happily offer suggestions for keeping your pet entertained while also maintaining their teeth clean.
