Your animal companions need dental cleanings to remove plaque, stain and tartar, just like you. Here are before and after photos from one of our patients, Marley.
Periodontal Disease in Pets
Periodontal disease can affect more than just your pet's teeth and gums. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream through inflamed, bleeding gums and attack your pet's heart, liver, and kidneys, potentially causing serious health problems. It's simple to avoid the dangers of poor oral health, you just need to take the proper steps.
- Ask your veterinarian for an oral exam for your pet.
- Schedule a professional dental cleaning. A professional cleaning will remove plaque, stain, and tartar encrusted around the gum line. This cleaning will require your pet to be put under anesthesia.
- Home care and proper diet.
- Brush your pet's teeth at home using toothbrushes and toothpaste designed for animals.
- Your vet may recommend an antibacterial rinse or gel, or antibiotics when brushing is not practical.
- Dry food, dental treats, and dental bones can be helpful in removing plaque above the gum line.
