Importance of Dental Care for Pets

Regular dental care benefits pets just as it does people. Healthy teeth allow good chewing so animals can receive the nutrition they need to maintain normal health and function. Keeping teeth clean also helps to remove the bacteria that can travel through the bloodstream to other organs, causing disease. Maintaining healthy teeth also avoids severe pain, which animals are so good at hiding from their owners. Finally, good dental hygiene helps sustain good health, so pet owners have fewer vet bills.

Common Dental Problems in Pets

Bad breath is one of the most common problems pet owners notice. Odor can result from plaque and bacteria on teeth, rotting teeth, or gum disease. Sometimes, an animal will retain baby teeth that crowd the mouth and impair normal chewing. Teeth can become broken from chewing on rocks, sticks, or other hard objects during the teething months. Mouth tumors can also occur that cause discomfort and make eating difficult.

Dental Services We Offer

We can help pets maintain good dental health with regular teeth cleaning and attention to problems when they arise. We can also provide extractions and treatment of gum disease. These procedures help your pet to enjoy greater comfort, better nutrition, and fewer health problems. During your pet’s physical exam, the vet will examine the teeth and mouth tissues for abnormalities, odors, or other signs. Then, the vet will recommend options for dental care to help your pet keep their teeth throughout life.
