At Animal Dental Care (ADC), we provide anesthesia-free dental care to dogs and cats under the supervision of licensed veterinarians throughout the country.
Animal Dental Care has been the leader of anesthesia free dental cleanings for over 20 years. We are devoted to improving the dental care of our pet population. Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and the future of preventative dental care for dogs and cats.
We take a proactive role for the prevention of periodontal disease which is so common in our pet population. Rather than treating this disease, which is what is done under anesthesia, by providing anesthesia free dental cleanings we are able to help prevent the build up of plaque and calculus which greatly contributes to periodontal disease.
According to American Veterinary Dental College “Periodontal disease is the most common clinical condition in adult dogs and cats, and is entirely preventable. By three years of age, most dogs and cats have some evidence of periodontal disease. …professional dental cleanings and periodontal therapy often comes too late to prevent extensive disease to save the teeth. As a result, periodontal disease is usually under treated, and may cause multiple problems in the oral cavity and may be associated with damage to internal organs to some animals as they age.”
Proactive dental cleanings is essential to prevent oral health problems in our pet population. Without regular cleanings, plaque and calculus will spread under the gum line causing gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and periodontitis (loss of bone and soft tissue around the teeth).
Veterinarians have multiple tools for diagnosing, preventing and treating periodontal disease; oral exam, scaling and polishing, and dental radiographs. All the tools are important and necessary to prevent, diagnose and treat periodontal disease. Animal Dental Care’s anesthesia free cleanings are done only under the supervision of a veterinarian who recommends this procedure as appropriate. Our seven step process is able to provide a thorough cleaning both above and below the gum-line using ultrasonic scaler and hand scalers. This provides an added tool to the veterinarian so regular maintenance can be implemented more often than their yearly dental and radiographs under anesthesia.
Animal Dental Care is passionate about providing high quality, anesthesia free dental cleanings to assist in our pet’s oral care. Our technicians are extensively trained in gentle techniques that allow extensive oral exams, thorough oral charting, and thorough dental cleanings.
