Dental cleaning and polishing is a routine procedure we daily perform at Aloropi Vet center for cats and dogs. A pet’s mouth does important work, it carries around all the food and provides important nutrients to the body.
Good oral health always ensures that your pet stays in good condition. The teeth are washed and properly clean to rinse off the food residue. All of this is performed by a Board Certified Veterinary Dentist with surgical and medicine-related experience.
As we all know, the mouth provides important elements to our body, from chewing and swallowing of food. Unlike humans, dogs use their mouths for other things like grooming, cooling, defense, and breathing. Ultimately, a pet has to use its mouth all day for an apprehending task.
If your pet has disinfected oral health, it can lead to serious problems. Furthermore, this pain can spread to the whole body and can lead to other hygienic problems. As we all know, how uncomfortable a toothache can be. Since dogs and cats don’t express their pain as we do, an animal dental checkup is important to ensure they are in good health.

We at Aloropi Vet Center use different procedures for dogs and cats dental care and cleaning. This includes tooth scaling, extraction, and polishing. The cleaning of the tartar in animals can help improve most of the dental problems – That’s why we always recommend homeowners to take good care of their pet’s at home, first.
The teeth are washed and properly probed by professionals to ensure that there’s no cavity left in the surrounding. Depending on your pet’s behavior, the procedure may contain local anesthesia. The anesthesia is administered by professionals after checking the blood work of the animal.
One of the most common dental procedures is scaling and polishing. At Aloropi, we first thoroughly check the mouth condition of your pet to determine where most care is required. Sometimes, the process may include ultrasonic scalers as well.
The scalers help us find the tartar without damaging the enamel. To check the gum lines, we use a thin probe in case there’s slight tartar left after the treatment. Once the procedure is completed, an oral cleansing and polishing solution is carried out to remove all the bacteria.
