You brush your teeth twice a day and visit the dentist at least once a year – but does your pet have the same sort of dental care regimen? Clean teeth and a healthy mouth are extremely important for your pet. Plaque and tartar build-up on your pet’s teeth can lead to periodontal disease. If left untreated, periodontal disease can eventually cause other serious health problems in your pet. This makes dental care a must for your pet.
Anasazi Animal Clinic provides your pet with a complete array of advanced veterinary dental care services. We perform comprehensive professional dental cleanings, digital dental x-rays, oral surgeries and tooth extractions. We have many happy patients throughout the Phoenix metro area too, including Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Glendale, Peoria, Ahwatukee, Phoenix and Queen Creek, AZ.
There are many veterinary clinics that will tell you they provide “veterinary dental services.” BUT, the sad fact is that most veterinarians and their staff practicing today have had minimal training in current, state-of-the-art dental techniques, as well as . . . professional dog and cat teeth cleaning.
A Dental Specialist and Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College, reports that
60 – 70% of the pathology found in our patients mouths occurs under the gum line and
may only be identified with dental x-rays.
According to Jim Merritt, Marketing Manager, Pfizer, “Less than 10 percent of small animal veterinarians across the country are equipped to take dental X-rays.”
So if you want your money spent on a dog dental teeth cleaning or cat dental teeth cleaning procedure that will actually make a difference in your pet’s health, ask the question! If a veterinary clinic doesn’t take digital dental x-rays or is not willing to show you and discuss several dental x-rays on the computer, they haven’t had sufficient training in veterinary dentistry. Save your money!
