Brushing your pet's teeth at home helps prevents pet's dental bad breath, red, swollen, bleeding gums, and tooth decay. While daily brushing is a fundamental for good oral hygiene, routine visits to your vet’s office will ensure the complete removal of all/any tartar from your pet's teeth. Ultrasonic cleaning is the process of removing deposits from teeth using high-frequency vibrations activated at the tip of a dental instrument. Ultrasonic cleaning is a safer and more effective way to have your pet's teeth professionally cleaned. It’s quicker, safer, and more effective than any other cleaning method.
Pets, like people, suffer from periodontal disease, which is responsible for oral inflammation and infection. If left untreated it will cause loss of teeth. Periodontal disease includes gingivitis (inflammation visible as reddening of the gums), and periodontists (the loss of bone and soft tissue support from around the teeth). Periodontal infection may cause disease elsewhere in your pet’s body when harmful bacteria from the mouth enter the blood stream.
It can be difficult for a pet owner to see the effects of periodontal disease. Halitosis (bad breath) can be a sign of oral disease. A thorough oral examination under sedation or anesthesia, combined with radio graphs to detect disease under the gingiva (gums), is the only way to fully investigate the oral cavity.
An oral or dental concern may have been noted during a routine visit with your veterinarian or you may have observed changes in your pet’s behavior or eating habits that cause you concern. Rest assured your veterinarian wants to provide the best possible care for your pet.
