Advanced Dental Procedures
If your pet requires an extensive procedure to cure it of dental diseases, Dr. Lindsey is the clear choice.
Dr. Lindsey is a board member of the American Veterinary Dental Society, and has extensive knowledge of canine and feline dentistry.
Advanced dental procedures at Clear Creek Animal Hospital always start with a thorough cleaning of the mouth. Certified Veterinary Technicians scale the calculus and tartar from the teeth, then polish them. Next, Dr. Lindsey takes digital dental radiographs, or X-rays, of your pet's mouth to asses the level of disease below the gum line. Dr. Lindsey then probes each tooth further for any signs of dental disease.
If a severe amount of disease is present, teeth may need to be extracted. Dr. Lindsey numbs each area and provides ample pain medication for every pet receiving dental extractions.
When your pet is finished with their dental procedure, they are awoken from anesthesia in the arms of a Certified Veterinary Technician and kept comfortable in a bed while they recover. Your Certified Veterinary Technician will have a lot of things to cover when you pick up your pet from his or her procedure, so be sure to schedule at least 30 minutes to go over instructions for care at home.
During the months of January and February, dental procedures are 20% off. Call 303-424-1314 to schedule your dental examination appointment.
