Benefits of Pet Dentistry

  • Prevention of Dental Disease: Regular dental cleanings help prevent dental issues such as periodontal disease, tooth decay, and bad breath.

  • Enhanced Quality of Life: Pets with healthy mouths are happier and more comfortable. Proper dental care can improve your pet’s quality of life and extend their lifespan.

How to Tell if Your Pet Needs Dental Care

Recognizing the signs of dental problems in pets is crucial for timely intervention. Look out for the following symptoms that may indicate your pet needs dental care:

  • Bad Breath: Persistent bad breath is often a sign of dental disease in pets.
  • Difficulty Eating: If your pet is having trouble chewing or avoiding certain types of food, it could be due to dental pain or discomfort.
  • Excessive Drooling: Increased drooling can indicate oral pain or inflammation.
  • Visible Tartar Buildup: Yellow or brown tartar on your pet’s teeth is a sign of poor dental health.
  • Swollen or Bleeding Gums: Inflamed or bleeding gums are common signs of gum disease in pets.

If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s essential to schedule a dental examination for your pet.

  • Comprehensive Dental Examinations: Thorough oral examinations to assess your pet’s dental health.
  • Professional Teeth Cleaning: Cleanings involve the removal of plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your pet’s teeth to prevent dental disease.
  • Dental X-rays: Advanced imaging to evaluate the health of your pet’s teeth and surrounding structures.
