Why Does My Pet Need a Professional Teeth Cleaning?

Many dogs and cats exhibit the beginning stages of periodontal disease by age three. This is entirely preventable, but if left untreated, gum disease can lead to cardiac disease, kidney infection, liver infection, and other systemic issues. Some studies show that pets with good oral hygiene can generally live two to four years longer. Here are some reasons why it's important for your precious pet to receive a dental checkup and teeth cleaning at least once per year:

  • Avoiding tooth loss due to periodontal disease
  • Helping your pet avert unnecessary pain and discomfort
  • Helping your pet maintain the health and functionality of their teeth
  • Improving bad breath
  • Preventing potential organ damage and other related complications

Our Dedication to Safe & Effective Dental Care

Pets experience many of the same dental issues humans do, like plaque and tarter build-up, periodontal disease, and tooth decay. However, they don't receive the same consistent care and maintenance as most people. Regular teeth cleaning can help your pet avoid future pain and discomfort. Proactive dental care also helps protect your wallet from costly procedures that come once the issue has fully developed and become much more difficult to manage.

One of the cornerstones of our effective teeth-cleaning services is the quality of tools our caring dental team uses. Our practice is equipped with modern veterinary capabilities. We aim to get the job done effectively, with minimal pain and a comprehensive approach in mind.

Our seasoned veterinary team has years of experience assisting cats and dogs of all sizes, temperaments, and lifestyles. For the optimal comfort of your pet and the safety of our caring team, we only perform dental services on anesthetized pets. To ensure your pet is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia, we will run a quick, routine blood test before moving forward with the procedure.

Cat & Dog Dental Cleaning FAQs

Our knowledgeable and supportive veterinary professionals are dedicated to addressing your questions and concerns upon your arrival at our practice. We strive to properly inform you about the nuances of our process so you can make educated decisions regarding your pet's oral health and well-being. Some frequently asked questions regarding cat and dog dental cleaning services include:

If I brush my pet's teeth at home, will that improve their dental health?

If you're up to the task of routinely brushing your pet's teeth using animal-safe toothpaste, it can be great for preventing tartar build-up. However, if significant tartar is already present, it must be removed with a professional dental cleaning by our skilled veterinary team.

This varies based on a number of factors like genetics, jaw structure, home oral healthcare, lifestyle, and diet. We will evaluate your pet to determine a proper oral care routine for their unique attributes. Generally, your pet should receive a dental cleaning or checkup at least once per year.

It's incredibly difficult to perform a thorough dental cleaning on an animal without anesthesia. In-depth cleanings are crucial to eradicating all harmful bacteria growing in your pet's oral cavity, and performing all the necessary probing and scraping is a meticulous process. Your pet needs to be still and calm for the allotted time so we can work as efficiently as possible. We minimize health risks when your pet is under anesthesia using established protocols and continuous monitoring from our attentive staff.
