Preventative Dental Care
Scheduling regular physical exams are as critical for your pets as it is for you. As part of your animals’ wellness exams, our veterinarian will thoroughly check their mouths. We will also take x-rays to get a better understanding of the health of their teeth and gum lines. Besides cleaning the teeth, we can perform extractions and do dental repairs if it is needed.
Symptoms of Pet Dental Issues
Your pets cannot tell you when they have a toothache or oral maladies, but they may exhibit pain through agitation and distress. If you notice that your animals’ teeth are showing discoloration, are beginning to accumulate tartar, or have bad breath, call us for a dental visit. Some other indicators of dental problems are excessive drooling, abnormal chewing, changes in appetite, and swelling or bleeding in the mouth. Failing to notice and address some of these issues could lead to larger, painful, and expensive problems.
Periodontal disease is not uncommon in dogs and cats, especially if regular brushing and cleaning did not occur in years. Brushing and cleaning of the teeth help remove plaque and tartar. If they continue to accumulate, they will turn into tartar. While tartar above the gum line can be removed by a veterinarian cleaning it, if it dwells beneath the gum line, it can lead to periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease can cause infections to the structures of that aids the teeth. Periodontal disease can also impact the integrity of the gums, which may result in tooth loss, tooth decay, or swollen gums. Failing to address this bacterial infection in your pets’ mouth may cause the bacteria to travel to the digestive system, causing further problems throughout the body.
