Pet Dentistry: Why Dogs (and Cats) Need Dental Care, Too

pet dentist

Pet dentistry is an established area of veterinary practice and veterinary care. You should take your pet for regular checkups of the oral cavity, including gums and teeth.

Key takeaways:

  • Poor care for the teeth and gums of your dog will lead to gingivitis, tooth cavities, gum recession, loose teeth, bacterial contamination, and exposure of the root.
  • Absorption of toxins into the blood stream may lead to joint problems, bacterial endocarditis, and kidney damage.
  • Removal of plaque on the teeth is carried out with an ultrasonic instrument under safe levels of anaesthesia.
  • The visit to the veterinarian can help get rid of plaque through the use of ultrasonic equipment.

“Be sure to take a good look in your dog’s (or cat’s) mouth and inspect it for any foul looking or smelling characteristics. If you are suspicious that something isn’t right, make an appointment with your veterinarian for a dental checkup.”
