Dental procedures for companion animals are far different than for humans. Most veterinarians prefer to sedate their patients for dental cleanings to put them at ease and make the process go more smoothly. Choosing a dental table that will make the procedure better for both the patient and their owner is critical. Here are a few tips:
- Wet table- Choose a dental table with a shallow wet tub that allows for drainage of fluids that occur during a dental cleaning.
- Adjustable height- A veterinary dental table that you can adjust lets you account for different operators and varying sizes of patients.
- Weight capacity- Be certain the veterinary dental table you choose can accommodate the heaviest patients you expect to treat. If you plan to treat heavy patients, consider a scissor table so you do not have to lift them.
- Combo units- Since anesthesia is often utilized for dental procedures, consider a combination gurney and anesthesia machine setup.
- Easy to clean- The vast majority of veterinary dental tables, or any type of veterinary table for that matter, are easy to clean, provided you go with a high-quality option fabricated of 16-gauge stainless steel.
- Extras- Don’t forget the rest of the things you’ll need for veterinary dental services, such as lighting and an x-ray system.
