Advancing Pet Dental Care with Continuing Education
Your pet’s oral health is vital to their overall well-being. Pet teeth cleaning is just as important as your own dental regime and regular care prevents disease-causing tartar buildup. Pet dental care is one of the fastest growing areas of veterinary medicine, and we’re at the forefront of advancing treatment. Our veterinary team in North Hollywood has substantial experience in dental procedures, with three of our senior doctors and one registered veterinary technician completing countless hours of continuing education and training seminars. Our RVT alone has over 20 years of dental care experience.
Our Extensive Dental Care Services
At Blue Cross Pet Hospital, we offer both anesthetic dental services, and non-anesthetic, too. Both can play a role in your pet’s preventive dental health. Anesthetic dental cleaning is essential for performing a full dental exam and cleaning below the gumline. This method is needed for pets with later stages of periodontitis. Meanwhile, non-anesthetic cleanings can be done to lengthen the time between anesthetic cleanings. They can help pets with early-stage periodontitis or no signs of the disease.
Schedule Your Pet Dental Care Appointment
Interested in setting up an appointment for a non-anesthetic or full anesthetic dental cleaning? Contact us today.
Your pet should receive regular anesthetic cleanings throughout their life. Under anesthesia, we can better assess any development of periodontal disease, perform extractions if needed, and take detailed X-rays. Throughout the procedure, your pet is under extensive monitoring by high-tech equipment and a dedicated technician. Your pet’s anesthetic cleaning includes:
- Full dental examination
- Scaling and polishing of each tooth
- Fluoride treatment
- Extractions if needed
- Sealants if needed
- Digital dental X-rays
During your pet's procedure, we can confer with dental specialists via telemedicine. We may check with a dental specialist for a variety of reasons, including to confirm our diagnosis, ask for a second opinion, or to get guidance on a complicated case.
Your pet’s non-anesthetic cleanings are done by a trusted company that comes to our clinic for every procedure. Non-anesthetic pet dental care is less extensive but is invaluable at staving off periodontal disease and lengthening the time between full anesthetic cleanings. Your pet’s non-anesthetic cleaning includes:
- Dental exam
- Scaling each tooth by a combination of ultrasonic and hand scalers
- Polishing of each tooth
Many pets take to the procedure very well, but if you're concerned about your pet’s stress level, please talk to us. We can offer advice and even mild sedatives to keep your pet calm during the procedure.
