While under anesthesia each tooth is examined and evaluated for evidence of periodontal disease. A thorough cleaning will be performed both below and above the gum line. Any necessary extractions will be performed. A dental procedure is finished with a final polish of the teeth to prevent bacteria and food from sticking to the tooth surface. Pain medication and antibiotics will be administered or sent home as needed.
Dental radiographs are an important part of a thorough dental cleaning. They help identify dental issues that are below the gum line. Fractured roots, retained teeth, bone infection (osteomyelitis), and tooth resorption are some of the issues that dental radiographs help identify.
KVVC has started to slowly re-open our doors. All visitors are required to wear masks. We are seeing patients inside for their appointments if their owners would like. Otherwise, all other business will be conducted via curbside. Please contact the clinic to arrange your visit. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
