What are the advantages of ultrasonic teeth cleaning a dog?

Brushing your dog's teeth with a brush is enough once or twice a week due to the fact that the composition of animal saliva is not the same as in humans.

But this procedure does not ensure the complete destruction of plaque, which eventually hardens and becomes tartar. Initially, the enamel surface of the tooth turns yellow, then darkens, and then becomes covered with a layer of sediment.

If you do not rid the dog of this inflammatory process, its teeth will start to lurch, and then fall out. Since the deposits on the teeth do not allow the saliva to come into contact with the enamel surface, it does not receive the necessary substances and quickly collapses. Ultrasonic cleansing will help to keep the animal's teeth.

How is ultrasonic cleaning the dog's teeth?

For such cleaning, you need veterinary dental equipment. This procedure is completely painless and therefore is carried out without anesthesia and takes up to an hour. However, if the dog is restless in character and large in size, general anesthesia may be used.

Cleaning is carried out on the inner and outer surfaces of the teeth. The device has several different nozzles and its power is adjusted in order to allow the removal of both fresh plaque and quite old deposits. Conveniently, this procedure can be carried out not only in a veterinary clinic, but also at home.

It is advisable to brush your teeth with ultrasound every six months, and maybe a year. It depends on how quickly deposits form in each case. For example, Yorkshire terriers, despite their small size, brushing your teeth more often than many other breeds. Too quickly they form tartar. The same problems in dogs breeds lapdog, dachshund, poodle.

Features of teeth cleaning the dog with ultrasound

There is also a mechanical method of getting rid of tartar. But unlike him, ultrasonic cleaning is completely harmless, it does not damage the enamel.

  • After this procedure, the enamel becomes especially smooth and this slows down the process of subsequent formation of tartar.
  • In addition, the ultrasonic cleaning device effectively removes plaque from under the gums without damaging it, which is very difficult to do with a metal tool.
  • Special nozzles allow you to get rid of dental calculus from the inside of the tooth, which is not done at all with the mechanical method.
  • For small dogs it is especially important that this procedure is performed without anesthesia.

Such a baby as a toy terrier or york is not very easy to determine the dose of anesthesia, which is necessary for a mechanical, more painful procedure.
