The Importance of Pet Dentistry

Prevent Dental Disease

Just like humans, pets are susceptible to dental problems such as periodontal disease, tooth decay, and gum inflammation. Regular dental care, including professional teeth cleaning and oral examinations, can help prevent dental disease and maintain your pet’s oral health.

Improve Overall Health

Poor dental health can have far-reaching effects on your pet’s overall health, potentially leading to systemic issues such as heart disease, kidney disease, and respiratory infections. By prioritizing pet dentistry, you can help prevent these health problems and ensure a happier, healthier life for your pet.

Professional Teeth Cleaning

Our veterinary team performs professional teeth cleaning procedures to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your pet’s teeth and gums. Using specialized dental instruments and techniques, we can effectively clean your pet’s teeth both above and below the gumline, reducing the risk of dental disease and promoting oral health.

Oral Examinations

Regular oral examinations are an essential part of pet dentistry, allowing our veterinarians to assess your pet’s dental health and detect any signs of dental disease or other oral problems. During these exams, we will check for issues such as tooth decay, gum inflammation, and oral tumors and provide recommendations for treatment as needed.

When to Tell if a Pet Needs Dental Care

Symptoms of Dental Problems

It’s essential to be aware of the signs and symptoms that may indicate your pet needs dental care, including:

  • Bad breath: Persistent bad breath can be a sign of dental disease or other oral problems.
  • Visible tartar buildup: If you notice yellow or brownish deposits on your pet’s teeth, it may indicate the presence of tartar, which can lead to dental disease if left untreated.
  • Swollen or bleeding gums: Inflamed or bleeding gums may be a sign of gum disease or infection.
  • Difficulty eating or chewing: Pets with dental problems may have difficulty eating or chewing their food, leading to changes in appetite or weight loss.
  • Excessive drooling: Excessive drooling can be a sign of dental pain or discomfort.
  • Changes in behavior: Pets in pain may exhibit changes in behavior, such as aggression, reluctance to eat, or avoiding touch around the mouth.
