Dentistry

Do you shy away from kisses and close cuddles with your animal companion 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 pet’s life. The good news is, with the right support, you can prevent all of this.

The professional dentistry services at Animal Medical Center of Bel Air 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. Dental services include the use of safe, effective anesthetic and constant monitoring to ensure patient safety.

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

  • Bad breath
  • 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 pet 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 that you’re brushing your companion’s teeth regularly. We recommend doing this at least three times a week, if not daily. Our experienced staff would be happy to offer demonstrations of the proper technique and give advice on various dental health products you can try.

You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your four-legged friend once again. The comprehensive dental services at Animal Medical Center of Bel Air can help get you there!

      Incredible staff and vet. We were new patients and they fit us in on a Sunday. The care was among the best we have ever had. We are permanently switching to them. I cannot say enough. ❤️

      Amazing service! Not my normal vet but they were the only place open on sundays so i went there. only took about 15/20 minutes and my kitten is all better! the next day i was sent via email a link to an app to make appointments, keep up with vaccinations and checkups and such! i was emailed again and they asked how she was doing! i’ve never had a vet do that, i think it’s awesome.

      Dr. Chaudhry and all of his staff have always been super! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. They are kind, caring, and compassionate. They do everything they can to help and don't hesitate to recommend a specialist if needed. All of the staff are patient, even when you have a ton of questions, and you are always greeted with a smile. They always take a spare minute to do a next day follow up too. We are so grateful to have them close by.
