Dental health is an important part of comprehensive veterinary services. Just like their owners, your pet’s teeth and gums should be examined and cleaned regularly to prevent common oral hygiene issues, disease, decay, and tooth loss.
Annual pet dental exams allow our Antioch veterinarian to catch potentially serious oral hygiene issues early on. However, if you notice any of the following symptoms, it is important to schedule a dental exam as soon as possible. Some common pet dental health problems include:
Veterinary dentistry includes a wide range of oral health services to ensure that your pet has a healthy mouth. Some of the dental services we can provide for your pet include cleanings, adjustment or filing, tooth re[pair and extractions. During the pet dental exam out vet will exam the mouth and typically take X-rays as well to evaluate the tooth roots and jaw.
A thorough dental evaluation may require your pet to be put under anesthesia, as most dental diseases occur below the gumline. Dental cleanings are completed while your pet is under anesthesia and include scaling or the removal of tartar and plaque from the teeth and gums, and polishing.
If left untreated common pet oral health conditions like plaque or tartar build-up can lead to more serious health issues. If your pet gets a cavity that isn’t properly taken care of they may experience serious health conditions like abscesses, cysts, and tumors in the mouth, periodontal disease and more.
Just like their owners, your family pets deserve the best oral care available. Want to learn more about the benefits of regular pet dental examinations?
