What Is Dental Cleaning and Polishing?

Taking care of your pet's smile is one way you can help them live a longer, healthier life. At Pet Method, we recommend bringing your cat or dog in for professional dental cleanings once each year. These preventive veterinary visits involve the removal of plaque and tartar, in addition to thoroughly cleaning and polishing the teeth. Along with a good at-home oral routine, dental cleanings for your cat or dog are key to preventing gum disease and secondary health problems, like tooth loss, heart disease, and kidney infections. Fear Free certified veterinarian Dr. Hunter Finn specializes in dental cleaning and polishing for cats and dogs at our vet clinic in McKinney, TX. He will ensure that your pet feels safe, relaxed, and comfortable throughout the dental treatment process.

What Happens During A Dental Cleaning?

Your pet will be asleep under general anesthesia and carefully monitored during the professional dental cleaning and polishing treatment. Once the anesthesia has been given, Dr. Finn will perform an assessment of your pet's teeth and then utilize a scaling tool to remove excess plaque and tartar above and below the gumline. This process helps prevent gum diseases, like gingivitis and periodontitis. A polishing tool will then be used to thoroughly clean the surface of the teeth to help lessen future plaque and tartar buildup. Finally, a fluoride solution is applied, followed by a sealant to add an extra layer of protection for the teeth. Once your pet is fully awake from anesthesia, they will be released to go home.

Oral Care for Your Pet

Help your pet keep a clean mouth and fresh breath by scheduling yearly dental cleanings at Pet Method in McKinney, TX. Dr. Hunter Finn and his compassionate team help ensure that pets feel at ease throughout their oral care visit by using a modern approach known as Fear Free. We want to help your pet develop a positive association with going to the vet.

The staff was very accommodating to fit us in as a semi emergency, same day, new patient. Dr Finns recommended treatment worked beautifully. His demeanor was outstanding, he examined my dog where he was most comfortable ie: in my lap and on the floor. Highly recommend.

Wow, what a great experience! Dr. Finn and his staff were absolutely wonderful. They were super friendly, answered all my questions, had a super clean office, and treated my cat with kindness and respect. I have been to many vets around the DFW area, and this has been the best experience I have had at a vet. Definitely will bring all my pets here for future wellness checks and more. Thank you!

I’m new to McKinney and needed to find a vet. I took my older lab, Buddy, to Pet Method. Everyone was so kind and friendly. I was getting around with a broken foot and they went above and out of their way to help me with Buddy while we were there. I loved how they got on the floor with Buddy, at his level and not putting him on an exam table. It made a world of difference. I will definitely take Buddy back from now on!

Everyone here is so kind & patient. My mom is 75 and we had to take her toy poodle here for an injury he had with his nail. They were all so good with him and very detailed about everything going on. Prices were affordable and service was great! Thank you for taking care of Wheatley!
