Pet Dental Care

Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface that is more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.

Why Pet Dental Care Matters

Like humans, pets can suffer from dental issues such as plaque buildup, gum disease, and tooth decay. Neglecting your pet’s oral health can lead to pain, discomfort, and even more serious health problems. Regular pet dental care can help prevent these issues and keep your pet’s mouth clean and healthy.

Signs Your Pet Needs Dental Care

Pay attention to your pet’s oral health and watch for signs of needing dental care. Some common symptoms of dental problems in pets include:

  • Bad breath
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Difficulty eating or chewing
  • Excessive drooling
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Changes in behavior or appetite

When to Schedule Pet Dental Care

We recommend scheduling a pet dental exam at least once a year as part of your pet’s routine wellness care. However, certain factors may increase the need for dental care, including:

  • Age: Older pets are more prone to dental problems and may require more frequent dental exams and cleanings.
  • Breed: Some breeds are genetically predisposed to dental issues and may require additional dental care.
  • Diet: Pets fed a diet high in carbohydrates, or soft foods may be at higher risk for dental disease.
  • Previous Dental Issues: Pets with a history of dental problems may require more frequent dental care to prevent recurrence.
