What to expect during your pet's dental cleaning


Most likely, your pet will be anesthetized for dental procedures, including cleaning. This allows the veterinary team to minimize the stress and pain your pet experiences and allows more thorough removal of plaque and tartar buildup, both on the teeth and below the gum line by the veterinary care team.

Most pets are able to safely go home the same day of the procedure but may be a bit groggy for the rest of the day. Your veterinary care team will advise you what to expect for recovery and what steps you can do at home to maximize good dental health for your pet.
