ULTRASONIC TEETH CLEANING FOR DOGS
We are now able to offer a brand new service – ultrasonic teeth cleaning for dogs.
Here is how it works:
Protects your pet from oral disease and tooth loss.
A regularly scheduled oral hygiene routine is the best way to protect your pet’s dental health.
We use an ultrasound toothbrush (each dog has their own personal toothbrush) and a specially formulated ultrasound toothpaste. Ultrasound reaches deep below the gum line to kill germs and bacteria and cleans the teeth and gums to prevent the build up of plaque and tartar. At the same time it increases the blood flow to the gums to heal wounds and stop bleeding.
- Gingivitis and periodontitis
- Oral cavity diseases
- Plaque and tartar build up
- Bad breath
It is estimated that by the time they are 2 years old, 80% of dogs begin to show signs of oral disease.
By using ultrasound tooth cleaning as part of a regularly scheduled routine, you can avoid taking your pet to the vet for a professional cleaning, which can only be achieved with full anaesthesia.
Vibration free without brushing.
The soft bristles are held against the teeth/gums allowing your pet’s teeth to be cleaned gently without the irritation of vibration or noise.
Regular teeth cleaning is recommended by veterinarians
Regular cleaning is the most important measure in the fight against dental decay. Ultrasound (air waves – air oscillations) perform the cleaning so brushing is not necessary. Ultrasound cleans more effectively than regular brushing, destroying bacteria even in gum pockets.
Neglecting your dog’s dental health can have other serious health implications, as bacteria from a dental infection can result in other organs being compromised, including the heart valves and kidneys.
Although we would recommend more regular treatment, even having your dog’s teeth treated when he comes in for grooming will be beneficial, as the ultrasound waves kill bacteria right under the gum line and will help to keep your dog’s teeth healthy and consequently improve his overall health. If you notice a build up of plaque, you can book a course of sessions to get back on track.
First visit includes: Consultation, Your dog’s own toothbrush and Treatment – £20
Subsequent visits: session lasts between 15 – 30 minutes – £10
If there is plaque/tartar present, we recommend that you start with a course of daily treatment.
PLEASE NOTE – IF YOUR DOG’S TEETH ARE SIGNIFICANTLY SCALED, WE WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU SEEK VETERINARY ATTENTION INITIALLY FOR A DENTAL DESCALE UNDER ANAESTHETIC, THEN CONTINUE WITH A REGULAR PROGRAMME OF ULTRASOUND TEETH CLEANING TO MAINTAIN YOUR DOG’S DENTAL HEALTH.
ULTRASONIC TEETH CLEANING TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Whilst this method of dental cleaning is highly effective in removing mild tartar, improving gums and mouth health and breath, Scizzor Yappy cannot guarantee the treatments’ effectiveness or suitability for individual dogs due to varying external factors.
Each dog will have its own tooth brush head that will not be used on another dog. This is purchased at the initial treatment and will be replaced after 15 treatments.
The cost of maintenance add-on treatments will be charged at each appointment and is based on frequency.
The cost of the tartar removal treatment must be paid in full at the initial treatment. Follow up treatments, if necessary, must be paid in full at the start of each follow up treatment.
If we feel any teeth are loose or at risk of becoming loose when the tartar comes off we may request you get your pets’ teeth checked at your veterinarian before treatment. It is possible that the tartar build up will be too great and then a veterinary dental may be necessary initially and then follow up ultrasonic maintenance visits with us.
Scizzor Yappy cannot be held responsible for any problems occurring from poor dentition before, during or after any ultrasonic treatments.
Scizzor Yappy’s ultrasonic treatment is not a veterinary procedure and Scizzor Yappy cannot diagnose any problems with your dogs mouth.
