Your pet’s dental care is essential for their overall health.
Dental illness is one of the most prevalent yet often neglected health issues affecting pets. Periodontal disease affects virtually all pets by the age of three. Bacteria infection along the gum line results from plaque accumulation, causing this condition.
Plaque is a gooey substance made up of millions of bacteria developing along the tooth surface and gum line. Without constant removal, plaque hardens into tartar over time. If left untreated, gum tissue and supporting structures surrounding the teeth can be destroyed, resulting in tooth loss. Periodontal disease is painful and harmful since it leads to the loss of teeth, but it may also damage vital essential organs such as the heart, liver, and kidneys.
Our veterinarians are experts in all aspects of professional pet dentistry, from dental examinations to cleanings and polishing of the teeth. We can also help you treat any dental issue your pet may be facing. Dental disease and other oral health issues may be treated with a range of methods, including antibiotics, the removal of diseased teeth, and more. We’ll consult with you to figure out the greatest approach to handle and manage your pet’s dental care in the most effective manner possible.
When dental care is required, our veterinarians will talk with you about the steps involved in a COHAT (comprehensive oral health assessment and treatment) plan. This most often includes a day at the veterinary hospital to prepare and conduct the procedures, which may include:
- Pre-Operative Lab Work
- IV Catheterization
- General Anesthesia
- Dental X-Rays
- Teeth Cleaning and Polishing
- Dental Charting
- Extractions when indicated
Following your pet’s dental procedure, the veterinary team will examine any instructions for post-dental medication, special feeding restrictions, and when to resume home dental care. As a result of you remembering to look after his or her mouth and provide him or her with a longer and happier existence, your pet will be grateful.
