Dentistry

Do you shy away from kisses and close cuddles with your animal friend due to bad breath?

Contrary to popular belief, foul breath isn’t something that all pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your pet is in need of dental care. Without adequate attention, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for dangerous bacteria. Over time, these bacteria can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other serious health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life. The good news is, with the support and guidance of Creature Comforts Animal Hospital, you can prevent all of this.

Our professional dentistry services are designed to provide all the care and attention needed for a lifetime of healthy smiles. We offer both routine, preventative care to keep plaque and tartar at bay, as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. Whether you’re stopping in for an annual dental exam and cleaning, or your pet needs a tooth extracted, we’ve got you covered.   All dental cleanings include full mouth radiographs just like your dentist would do for you.   Much of the dental disease your pet could be suffering from is below the gum line and not visible without radiographs.  We want to make sure if your pet has any painful disease below the surface we find and fix it.  Dental services include the use of safe, effective anesthetic, intravenous catheter and fluids, and constant monitoring to ensure patient safety.   Your pet’s well-being during anesthetic procedures is our top priority.  Our monitoring protocol goes above and beyond the normal standard of care.

Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Discolored teeth
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

If your animal friend is exhibiting any of these things, it’s time to schedule an exam. We can determine what the problem is and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one.

In addition to our professional dental care, we’ll also work closely with you to ensure that your pet’s teeth stay healthy and clean year-round. In between annual cleanings, it’s important to prevent plaque and tartar accumulation.  Brushing your companion’s teeth daily is great to do if possible.   Our experienced staff would be happy to offer demonstrations of the proper technique.  We realize for many pet parents brushing daily is not practical.  We can also give advice on various dental health products you can use to keep your pet’s teeth as healthy as possible between annual cleanings.  We can even apply a barrier sealant after your pet’s cleaning that will prevent tartar and plaque under the gum line, where it does the most damage, for 6 full months.  Together we can develop a plan that works for both you and your pet.

 

You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your best friend once again. The professional dental services at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital can help get you there! Call today!

      I can't say enough good things about this facility. My fur face absolutely loves boarding here. I have a house full of "exotics". Dr Gorman is one of the best in the city for rat care. The ladies at the front desk are great and are very empathetic when it is time to help our loved ones over the rainbow bridge.

      There aren't many bunny savvy vets in Las Vegas, so I am happy I found them. They got my girl in and took great care of her when... Read More

      I saw an add for a free wellness exam here on Facebook and decided to take advantage of it because of the reviews I’d seen. I felt that my previous vet (won’t mention names lol) wasn’t giving my big boy the best care. I have felt that my dog has had an ear infection for a pretty long time now. Every time I’ve taken him to my other vet they told me he was fine. My dog is 100lbs, and freaks out if you try to look in his ears. I knew they hadn’t had a good look at the ear. Dr. Miguel Nieves really went above and beyond. He and his staff worked together (took 4 assistants to hold him down) and found his infection, and Dr. Nieves even worked through his lunch break to get it all taken care of because he knew my boy was in pain. I usually have issues giving him medication too, I can’t even hide it in food usually. But this vet gave him flavored anti inflammatory pills, I can just give it to him like a treat, no issues! I know my dog is not easy to handle with his giant hyper self, And the entire staff was great with him. Everyone was so kind and professional, you can really feel that they care for pets and pet parents here. Also they are very fairly priced for their services. My old vet charged about $40 per vaccination, and they were only $14 and $20 for the ones I got here. I definitely recommended, I’m so so so happy I found this place!
