North American Veterinary Heart Center Offers Dental Care to High-Risk Patients
Date:7/25/2018

There are few things worse than dog breath.

And there are few things worse than the damage poor dental hygiene can cause for your pet.

Foul mouth odors can indicate tooth decay and gum disease, and those oral problems can lead to other issues. Many dogs with heart disease also have dental disease severe enough that needs dental care. Pets with underlying medical conditions, like cardiac disease, are at a higher risk of undergoing proper dental care.

While you may have heard of anesthesia-free dental cleaning as an option for cleaning teeth, the authority on teeth health, the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) is quite firmly opposed to this procedure.

Anesthesia-free dental procedures are not like a human going to the dentist; the pet will need to be restrained often causing more stress, particularly for the cardiac cases. “White teeth do not mean a clean and healthy mouth.” Says AVDC “…there is much more than meets the eye.” Surfaces below the gum line may remain dirty and loaded with harmful bacteria continue to cause damage and destruction of teeth and bony structures.

That is where North American Veterinary Heart Center comes in.

“Our advanced dental surgical suite makes oral care available for patients that have a higher risk of complications when undergoing anesthesia,” Dr. Pelosi said. “The care and safety of our patients is our top priority.”

Though patients remain a high risk, each dog is individually evaluated, and the anesthetic risk is assessed based on the categories of the American Society of Anesthesiologist (ASA) Patient Status Scale. The highly advanced protocols at NAVHC, provide their patients with an optimal chance of successfully restoring oral health while minimizing the risk.

“We can offer high-quality dental care for pets, taking a ‘healthy mouth, healthy body’ perspective,” Dr. Pelosi said. “It is critical that this service is available to cardiac patients, senior, and any other patient with the severe disease in the Liver, Kidney, etc.”

All dental procedures are performed by the Heart Center’s veterinary anesthesiologist and dentist, under the medical direction of Dr. Pelosi.

North American Veterinary Heart Center is at 1680 S. Central Blvd., Suite 112, Jupiter. For more information, visit http://www.navetheart.com or call 561-250-6580.
