Dentistry

The oral health of your of your pet is an integral part of his or her overall health. Poor dental care could lead to diseases that affect such vital organs as the liver, heart, kidneys, and bloodstream of your pet. It has been documented that 80% of dogs aged three years and over suffer from some type of dental disease. The same rings true for 70% of cats within that age range. Indeed, dental diseases rank as some of the most prevalent health issue affecting pets. Despite these troubling facts, improving your pet’s dental hygiene is not as difficult as it may seem. Brushing, use of dental chews, and professional teeth cleaning will help ensure optimal dental health for your pet. Brushing your pet’s teeth prevents the buildup of plaque, which will otherwise harden over time to form tartar or calculus in your pet’s mouth. If calculus has already formed, though, professional dental cleaning will be needed to remove it from your pet’s teeth – thus improving his or her dental health. Gingivitis, periodontitis (advanced development of gingivitis) and tooth loss are among the problems that could arise from the buildup of plaque in your pet’s mouth. Bad breath and stained teeth are not just unappealing; they are also tell-tale signs of the presence of serious gum disease. To properly maintain your pet’s oral health and prevent dental diseases, it is important that you bring your pet in periodically for professional teeth cleanings. Using specialized tools and experience, our veterinary technicians perform thorough cleanings that reach even the area beneath the gums – something that cannot be done at home. Our team of qualified and experienced dental hygienists will carry out a series of dental examinations to identify any abnormalities. We will note any concerns we might have concerning the oral health of your pet, and discuss the most appropriate care method with you. While we are always on hand to take care of any dental emergencies your pet might have, we are strong advocates of preventative dental health care for your pets. Our goal is to limit the possibility of diseases and health complications before they arise. Brown teeth, yellow teeth, bad breath or painful eating are potential signs that your pet might have dental disease. To learn more about our dental care and schedule a dental cleaning session for your pet, please call us at 501-223-3737 today.
