Oral Surgery with Extractions
Oral surgery is needed when advanced pathology is found in your pets mouth. Unfortunately once advanced periodontal pathology is identified, oral surgery with the use of anesthetics as well as full mouth x-rays may be the only way to remove the teeth and clean the rest of the mouth. This procedure will eliminate the bad breath and the help your pet experience a healthier and pain free mouth. The majority of pet owners are unaware of the dangers that could be associated with poor dental care. Give us a call and we can help you understand them. Schedule a dental assessment today and learn more.
The cost for an anesthetic dental or any anesthesia procedure will very in cost depending on the amount of time, the weight and breed of your pet. We suggest a medical assessment prior to any anesthetic procedure to evaluate your pet and also so we can provide a treatment plan.
Additional services while under anesthetic are sometimes available depending on the procedure.
I just took my dog today to get checked out by Animal Hospital & Dental Clinic; her tooth was severely infected and there was a huge abscess that caused fluid buildup and swelling on her face which almost shut her eye completely. After examining her, they decided to take her in for a tooth extraction immediately. Everything was explained to me clearly and with detail about her condition and about the procedure. I was updated when needed during the procedure by the dental tech himself, which helped to ease my concern. I had a great experience there with the staff; they cared for my dog the way I would, not to mention her three day old puppy was able to stay with her and then taken to an incubator during the procedure. The price was less than half of what a hospital in Visalia wanted to bill me. I'm so grateful I found this place and they were able to help us out so quickly!

Some important things to understand prior to having your pets teeth cleaned. Candidates for cleaning are pets with good temperaments that have level 1 or 2 build up and mild to moderate (reversible) gingivitis. Advanced build up with mobility or advanced periodontal disease may require oral surgery with extractions. The cleaning that is done during our non anesthetic procedures utilizes the same process, technique and instruments that are utilized during oral surgery under anesthetics for cleaning.
- Full mouth assessment with detailed charting.
- 4-6 point probing of each tooth.
- Hand Scaling to remove large calculus build up.
- Ultrasonic Piezo Scaling of all sides of the teeth, as well as under the gum line to remove and flush out plaque and bacteria.
- Polishing of each tooth with a semi course dental polish.
- Rinsing with a Chlorhexidine rinse.
- Review pathology with the owner if concerns arise during the cleaning.
- 30 min-45 min depending on procedure.
*If advanced pathology is discovered during one of our non anesthetic dental procedures, the procedure will stop and your pet will be referred to have an anesthetic dental.
