Sometimes the damage from periodontal disease cannot be determined until the teeth are cleaned. We believe teeth are important and we do everything possible to save teeth. If a tooth or gums require more advanced care that we can provide, we recommend Dr. Visser at Aid Animal Clinic for further care. We will notify you if more advanced care is needed.
We work to save all teeth. If a tooth, however, is going to be a chronic source of pain and/or infection, the chances are the tooth will be extracted. Extraction is always a last resort. The doctor will examine each tooth after they are cleaned and polished to determine if further therapy is needed. Antibiotics and post-op pain medication will be dispensed as determined by the doctor.
