The goals of dental care are to eliminate current pain, prevent future loss of teeth, reduce discomfort from new infections, and decrease secondary risks of heart, liver and kidney infections due to severe dental disease. Dental care is one of the biggest advances in better lives for our pets. The costs of pet dental care are associated with the time these procedures involve, the use of anesthesia and advanced equipment and training. Because our patients are asleep, we can remove diseased, painful teeth right away if necessary. We have invested in advanced equipment and training that allow us to provide a high level of care while minimizing anesthesia time. While all these steps add to cost, they also add up to the best care and healthier pets!
