Dental Care

When it comes to your pet’s well-being, don’t overlook the importance of good dental care. Neglecting proper dental hygiene can have severe consequences on your pet’s teeth and overall health. Our Fairlea veterinarian offers routine dental care to safeguard your furry friend’s oral well-being.

Understanding the Importance of Pet Dental Care

Pets, just like their human companions, are susceptible to dental issues like abscesses, tooth discoloration, bleeding gums, and periodontal disease. These problems can arise quickly and jeopardize your pet’s teeth. Left untreated, periodontal disease can even spread through the bloodstream, impacting internal organs. By opting for regular dental care, our Fairlea veterinarian can identify and address dental concerns in their early stages, preventing them from escalating into major health issues. Routine check-ups and cleanings can effectively ward off dental problems, preserving your pet’s teeth and overall well-being.

Pet Dental Exams and Cleanings: What to Expect

Based on your pet’s age and oral health, we recommend scheduling annual or bi-annual dental checkups and cleanings to protect their teeth and gums. During a dental exam, our veterinarian will conduct a thorough assessment of your pet’s mouth, searching for signs of infection or disease. X-rays will be taken to assess bone health beneath the gum line. If any dental issues are detected, we will discuss suitable treatment options tailored to your pet’s needs.
Dental cleaning involves the removal of plaque and tartar from your pet’s teeth through scaling, eliminating bacteria that contribute to infections and gum disease. We’ll then polish your pet’s teeth to remove stains, leaving them smooth and shiny. These procedures are performed under anesthesia to ensure your pet experiences no discomfort or pain. Anesthesia also ensures your pet remains still, allowing us to conduct a meticulous cleaning.

Home Dental Care

In addition to professional cleanings, you can contribute to your pet’s dental health by regularly brushing their teeth with pet-specific toothbrushes and toothpaste. This helps control plaque and tartar buildup between dental visits. Consider purchasing pet food, treats, and toys designed to minimize plaque and tartar accumulation. Combining professional cleanings with consistent home care will promote excellent oral health for your cherished pet.
