DENTAL CARE

Protect your pet’s dental and overall health.

APPOINTMENT

Veterinary dental care is an essential component of your pet’s preventive health care plan.

Routine care of your pet’s teeth is important. Although you certainly have a role in caring for your pet’s teeth at home, it is also important for your pet to have regular dental exams and cleanings by a veterinarian.

Good dental care helps prevent a number of dental and oral diseases that can be extremely painful and contribute to a number of systemic problems, including heart and kidney disease.

Signs of periodontal disease may include:

  • Bad breath
  • Redness or bleeding along the gum line
  • Drooling
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Pawing at the mouth

AAHA Dental Anesthesia Standards

At Animal Medical Care, we follow the AAHA’s new dental standards that require general anesthesia and intubation for dental cleanings to ensure they are safe and effective. Animal Medical Care minimizes any risk of anesthesia through proper monitoring and advanced anesthetic techniques.

Our Process

To provide your pet with the best of care, Animal Medical Care performs a thorough exam and lab work before cleaning your pet’s teeth. A veterinarian then develops an anesthetic plan that is individualized for your dog or cat.

After the anesthesia is administered, your pet’s teeth are cleaned by a trained Veterinary Technician. Any plaque is removed with an ultrasonic scaler, and your pet’s teeth are polished with a low-speed rotary polisher. A veterinarian then re-examines your pet’s mouth to see if any surgical procedures are necessary.

Your pet is then monitored and not left alone until he or she is able to sit up on its own. From there, we will work together to create an at-home plan to keep your pet’s teeth healthy.
