Many symptoms of dental disease are so subtle that they may go unnoticed. A main sign of dental problems is bad breath, which is often seen as normal. You should also be on the lookout for:
Professional dental exams are important because our team can use tools to assess the whole mouth even further than the naked eye can see. With at least one yearly exam, our team can properly clean your pet's teeth and remove the food and bacteria which accumulates and causes infections. If left untreated, their gums deteriorate and they can have decay that leads to tooth loss and oral surgery. When your pet has dental issues it can affect other organs such as kidneys, liver, lungs and heart.
Although routine dental exams are important, you should also be on top of their dental health daily by brushing. Brushing your pet's teeth regularly will remove any plaque and prevent it from hardening (tartar). Most pets won't like having their teeth cleaned, but when you establish a routine, they will get used to it. In addition to brushing, you can give them treats that clean their teeth as they chew. You should also provide toys that are safe for their teeth.
