ANESTHESIA-FREE DENTALS: GOOD OR BAD?
Written by Katie Liu, DVM
Anesthesia-free dentals seem like an attractive alternative to dental cleanings under general anesthesia, but they are a cosmetic procedure that has little effect on a pet's health and gives a false sense of benefit.
They remove the superficial tartar on the surface of the teeth without addressing the plaque and tartar under the gum line, where the true periodontal disease that leads to bone and tooth loss is present. Also without the benefit of post-scaling polishing, the surface of enamel is uneven and will subsequently accumulate tartar more quickly.
