At Qualified Pet Dental, we believe that the anesthesia-free approach is often the best choice for maintaining your pet's dental health, yet it should only be practiced by properly-trained, dedicated professionals.
Beware of so-called 'cosmetic teeth-cleaning' or 'teeth-whitening' services. Such procedures offer no preventative benefits whatsoever and can actually cause further damage to your pet's oral health.
Proper dental treatment, whether full-sleep or anesthesia-free, involves a thorough cleaning of all tooth-surfaces including below-the-gumline -- where most dental problems develop.
But this type of cleaning requires not only a great deal more knowledge, skill and training, but also the supervision of a Veterinarian. Any such service performed without a licensed Vet is both unsafe and illegal.
