Dental Care

While often overlooked, dental care is just as important for pets as for people.

Dental Care Is an Important Part of Wellness Care

You probably would not dream of living your entire life without ever seeing a dentist. So, why wouldn’t you want to make sure your pet’s teeth are properly cared for? Dental services are just as important for pets as they are for people. Unfortunately, they are often overlooked by even the most responsible pet parents. At Ortega Animal Care Center, we offer comprehensive dental care services for pets in San Juan Capistrano, Ladera Ranch, San Clemente, Dana Point, Mission Viejo, and the surrounding areas and would be honored to be entrusted with caring for your pet’s pearly whites.

Why Pet Dental Care Matters

Most dogs and cats who do not receive adequate professional dental care suffer from some degree of periodontal disease by the time they reach three years of age. While the problem often begins as a seemingly simple case of bad breath or tooth discoloration, it usually progresses. When left untreated, your pet’s dental problems could lead to discomfort, pain, difficulty eating, tooth loss, and infections. Infections originating in the oral cavity can even enter the bloodstream and travel throughout a pet’s body, resulting in kidney, liver, and heart damage. Severe untreated periodontal disease can even cause death.

When you bring your pet to us for pet dental care, we will thoroughly examine their teeth and gums and perform a comprehensive cleaning while they are under general anesthesia. We’ll also take digital dental x-rays to look for problems that may be lurking below the gumline. In addition to cleanings and exams, we are also equipped to perform extractions and oral surgery when needed. No matter what dental services your pet needs, a member of our team will closely monitor them to make sure they are safe and comfortable every step of the way.
