Pet Dental Health

Taking good care of your pet’s teeth is one of the most important things you can do to keep them in optimal health. Studies have shown that routine dental cleanings can add 5-7 years onto your pet’s life, not to mention eliminating the pain associated with red, swollen gums. Small dental problems, left untreated, can develop into periodontal disease, creating infection, gum line recession, ulcers, sores, and tooth loss. The bacteria associated with periodontal disease will ultimately migrate to other organ systems and can lead to early kidney and liver disease.

Dental Health is one of the most important, if not the most important, aspects of your pet’s overall long-term general health. Annual dental scale and polish is recommended and should begin very early in life. We always offer complimentary oral examinations and consultations to present you with the best medical treatment program for your beloved friend.

What are some warning signs of dental health problems in my pet?

If your pet displays any of the following warning signs, we recommend they be brought in for a dental checkup. These are signs that serious periodontal disease may be present.

  • Bad breath
  • Changes in eating or chewing behavior
  • Abnormal drooling
  • Brownish-yellow crust on teeth
  • Gums bleeding
  • Tooth loss
  • Change in behavior
