Non-anesthetic dental care is a popular service designed to maintain the appearance of your pet's teeth. When performed under the care of a veterinarian, it can be a safe and effective way of removing plaque and tartar, reducing bad breath, and reducing the frequency of necessary anesthetic dental procedures.When performed carelessly or illegally, it can be worthless or even damaging to your pet's dental health.
Dr. Costuma and his dental care team can provide this service safely and effectively for those dogs and cats that qualify. We also offer sedation or tranquilization to accommodate our more "anxious" patients, with the effects of sedation quickly reversed as soon as the cleaning is completed. A dental exam provided with a thorough physical examination by Dr. Costuma can determine if your pet would benefit from this service. If you are not satisfied with the results or if we simply can not complete the cleaning to our standards, you will not be charged. Additionally, if periodontal disease or gingivitis is suspected or detected during the procedure you will be notified so that the necessary dental therapy can be authorized or planned.
Please call us to schedule a dental exam or inquire for further details at (951) 698-7511.
