Let’s face it: If our pets had opposable thumbs, they’d be brushing their teeth, too. (Who really wants to go around with doggy breath anyway?) But because they can’t do their own brushing, it’s important that we provide that service for them, along with a host of maintenance and urgent dental pet care services, just like what’s available for humans.
As humans, we know that life can be pretty miserable with a toothache, an ache deep in our jaw, something stuck in our gums, or – worse – teeth that fall out. We need our teeth, and our pets need their teeth, too!
At Laguna Beach Veterinary Medical Center, we aim to create the most comfortable and gentle dental experience for your pet. A great deal of that “gentle approach” has to do with the state-of-the-art technology we’ve invested in to provide fast, efficient and painless cleaning, extractions and surgeries. Our “Dental Suite” (as we like to call it) is an entire room dedicate to full dental pet care. It provides a heated table, ultrasonic de-scalers, digital dental X-rays that we can see and work from immediately, and high/low state-of-the-art cool lighting that allows us to see every nook and cranny for faster care and help.
We’re also one of the few veterinary dental centers in the area that provides three different levels of dental care. We suggest the non-aesthetic approach for mild build up; a light sedative for more deep cleaning or pets who seem a bit anxious about being in the dentist’s chair, or modern, carefully monitored anesthesia for extractions or laser surgery.
