The best way to maintain good health and prevent more serious problems from developing in pets.
Nobody wants to smell a foul odour coming from somebody's mouth, especially from your beloved pet who gives you kisses every day. Dental care is just as important in pets to maintain good overall health and well-being. Without proper dental care, pets can develop dental problems such as periodontal disease, which can lead to tooth loss, pain, and other complications in other parts of their body.
There are several ways to help prevent dental problems and here are just a few:
Plaque is a sticky film that forms on the teeth. It is made up of bacteria, food particles, and saliva. If not removed through regular brushing, it can harden into tartar, which is much more difficult to remove and can lead to dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Even if you brush your pet's teeth everyday, there may be buildup underneath the gumline. That's when professional dental cleaning is recommended as it involves a thorough cleaning of both the teeth and gums under anesthesia. This allows the veterinarian to clean beneath the gum line where bacteria and tartar may be present, and to remove any diseased or damaged teeth if necessary. During the cleaning, your loyal companion's teeth are scaled and polished, the gums are examined for signs of inflammation or infection, and dental X-rays may also be taken to evaluate the health of the teeth and roots beneath the gum line.
