vet dentistry mcmaster & heapDentistry

All our vets are trained in dentistry, which involves routine scale and polishes, tooth extractions, dental radiography, and treatment of periodontal disease. Patients are fully anaesthetized for this and dentals are performed in a dental suite. Animals are carefully monitored by a veterinary nurse and blood pressure readings are recorded every 2-3 minutes. Pain relief is given if teeth are extracted. These animals recover quickly and are sent home that night.

We see them back for a FREE post op check in 7 days if teeth have been extracted. Soft food is recommended for 5 days post dental. We have dental clinics that our nurses run to assess your pets teeth and gums. We offer many preventative treatments to help keep dental disease at bay.
