Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include:
- Bad breath
- Loose, broken, or missing teeth
- Yellow or brown teeth
- Red, inflamed, or bleeding gums
- Difficulty or pain when chewing
- Pawing at the mouth
- Excessive drooling
If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team, and we’ll be happy to help.
We are proud that we have the most up-to-date equipment to treat dental disease, including digital dental x-rays. This allows us to detect if there is any disease beneath the gum line that we would not be able to see otherwise. We can often see undetected abscesses, broken teeth, resorbed roots, retained roots, and more, thanks to dental radiographs.
Taking care of your pet’s teeth at home can prevent dental issues from occurring in the future. It helps fight bad breath, plaque buildup, and gingivitis. Dental care is especially important if your pet suffers from diabetes or any heart-related issue. Not many people know that using regular toothpaste on your pet can actually harm them! Be sure that when brushing, you are using a pet-specific toothpaste.
