We are now able to offer a brand new service – ultrasound teeth cleaning for dogs.
Here is how it works:
Protects your pet from oral disease and tooth loss.
A regularly scheduled oral hygiene routine is the best way to protect your pet’s dental health.
We use an ultrasound toothbrush (each dog has their own personal toothbrush) and a specially formulated ultrasound toothpaste. Ultrasound reaches deep below the gum line to kill germs and bacteria and cleans the teeth and gums to prevent the build up of plaque and tartar. At the same time it increases the blood flow to the gums to heal wounds and stop bleeding.
Gingivitis and periodontitis
Oral cavity diseases
Plaque and tartar build up
It is estimated that by the time they are 2 years old, 80% of dogs begin to show signs of oral disease.
By using ultrasound tooth cleaning as part of a regularly scheduled routine, you can avoid taking your pet to the vet for a professional cleaning, which can only be achieved with full anaesthesia.
Regular teeth cleaning is recommended by veterinarians
Regular cleaning is the most important measure in the fight against dental decay. Ultrasound (air waves – air oscillations) perform the cleaning so brushing is not necessary. Ultrasound cleans more effectively than regular brushing, destroying bacteria even in gum pockets.
Neglecting your dog’s dental health can have other serious health implications, as bacteria from a dental infection can result in other organs being compromised, including the heart valves and kidneys.
Although we would recommend more regular treatment, even having your dog’s teeth treated when he comes in for grooming will be beneficial, as the ultrasound waves kill bacteria right under the gum line and will help to keep your dog’s teeth healthy and consequently improve his overall health. If you notice a build up of plaque, you can book a course of sessions to get back on track.
