Does My Pet Need a Veterinary Dentist?

Imagine spending most of your life without the attention of a dentist or having your teeth brushed. By age three, a majority of cats and dogs show signs of dental disease. Food particles and other foreign objects often get trapped in their oral cavity, leading to bacterial growth, infection, and decay. Untreated teeth and gums affected by dangerous bacteria could potentially travel into the bloodstream, causing serious health issues and severe pain down the road.

Common signs of infection and possible dental disease in your pets include:

  • Yellow or brown plaque buildup on the teeth
  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Excessively bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Abnormal changes in eating or chewing habits
  • Consistent pawing at the face
  • Loose teeth
  • Depression

Vet Dentistry FAQs

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are always happy to answer your questions regarding our process, the materials we use, aftercare tips, and preventive measures for the future. Some frequently asked questions regarding pet dentistry include:

How often should my pet get a dental checkup?

Even if they aren't experiencing any negative symptoms, we recommend that our pet dentists evaluate your cat or dog's oral health at least once per year. It's always best to take a proactive approach to your pet's dental health rather than a reactive one. Once an infection or issue occurs, it's much more difficult to manage.

Routinely brushing their teeth using pet-safe toothpaste can be great for preventing tartar buildup. However, if significant tartar is already present, they will need to undergo a professional dental cleaning by our team.

If bacteria growing in the oral cavity remains untreated, it can travel into the bloodstream and cause infections in the liver, kidneys, lungs, and heart. Our veterinary practice can run a thorough physical exam using our technology and practical skills to ensure their mouth is clean and there are no infections that could cause more significant problems.
