Just Cats Clinic offers full dentistry services including dental cleanings, extractions when needed, and full dental radiographs. All dental procedures are done under general anesthesia with vital signs including temperature, heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels carefully monitored by our staff. All dental procedures, regardless of whether extractions are expected, get full mouth dental radiographs to check for any potential issues that may not be visible upon examination. A full mouth examination is also performed to check for any abnormalities.
Teeth are cleaned with an ultrasonic scaler and polished. We also measure gum pocket depth to assess overall gum health. For any extractions that are needed, local blocks are used to minimize any potential discomfort or pain when your cat wakes up from anesthesia. Pre and Post radiographs are used to ensure all of the extracted tooth and root were successfully removed and no pieces were left behind that could cause pain. We also use our Class IV laser on all gum tissue while your cat is recovering to help with any inflammation. All cats that have extractions will be given pain medication to ensure they are as comfortable as possible while they recover.
