Before and after of a dental performed at MGAH on a 10yr old Labrador
What is entailed in a full dental?
~Sonic scaling that removes the glued on tarter that will not otherwise come off.
~ Probing along the gums to detect early problem areas (gum recession, gingivitis) and evaluate level of decay.
~Extractions are only performed if fracture or gum recession prevents the teeth from being salvaged.
~And remember, age is NOT a disease. Granted there are risks with any anesthetic procedure (animals and humans alike), but with comprehensive blood-work evaluating internal organ function, and anesthetic monitoring during anesthesia (blood pressure, ECG, temperature, pulse OX), our older healthy pets have the same risks as our younger pets.
