Otay Vet Veterinary Clinic - Dental Surgery
Our dental cleanings are performed with an ultrasonic cleaning system such as is used by your dentist to clean and polish your teeth. Because we cannot ask our patients to "open wide", this procedure requires light anesthesia to be performed. We use the best anesthesia protocols and monitor each patient's vital signs.
There is mounting evidence that excess tartar build up with age can lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease. If this infection goes untreated, the bacteria in the oral cavity can enter the bloodstream and possibly harm the heart, liver, kidney or other organs.
We also perform dental surgery such as tumor removal, tooth repair and extractions.
