According to the American Animal Hospital Association, nearly two-thirds of dog owners do not follow the recommended guidelines for their pet’s dental care. For this reason, gum disease is the most common clinical condition in adult dogs - often as early as three years old!
If we don’t take proper care of our dog’s mouths, they can experience plaque build-up which turns into tartar and leads to gum inflammation, bone/soft tissue loss, and gum disease. In addition to tooth loss, a bacterial infection in the mouth can lead to complications of the heart, lung, or kidneys as your dog ages. With regular dental care from our expert team, these diseases are preventable.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Pet Dental Cleaning?
During your pet's dental cleaning, plaque and tartar will be removed from the teeth, and the health of the entire mouth will be checked. Your pet will be under anesthesia during this process, so they will be free of pain or discomfort. During anesthesia, a soft plastic tube is inserted into the main airway in the throat to support breathing. The placement of the tube also prevents inhalation of bacteria that are aerosolized during the cleaning.
What are the Benefits of a Dental Cleaning?
A professional dental cleaning for your pet has many benefits. In addition to removing visible plaque and tartar, we will also remove bacteria from under the gums. This eliminates potential sources of infection to the mouth and other organs. Dental cleanings also reduce the likelihood of future pain and tooth loss.
