The Importance of Routine Pet Dental Care
Your pet's dental health is extremely important, as dental and oral health issues can put your pet in serious pain and discomfort. One common pet dental problem, tooth decay, can be very painful for your pet and even prevent him or her from being able to eat solid food comfortably. Over time, untreated tooth decay can become a serious threat to your pet's overall health because this decay can turn into a dangerous infection known as an abscess.
Furthermore, when your pet's oral health is neglected, your pet may also be more prone to developing gum disease—the consequences of which can be permanent.
By having your pet's dental health cared for on a regular basis can help to prevent these issues, as well as keep your pet's breath fresher. It's a win-win situation for everyone!
How Our Summerfield Veterinarian Can Help
At The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt, our Summerfield veterinarian offers a wide range of pet dental care services to suit your needs. For starters, we offer routine dental exams, which can help us to get a better idea as to where your pet's oral health stands and what kinds of further treatment may be recommended. We generally recommend these exams once every year or two, though this can vary depending on your pet's age.
We also offer thorough dental cleanings, which are ideal for removing plaque and other build up from your pet's teeth and gum line. These cleanings can help to protect your pet against tooth decay, gum disease, and other serious oral health problems down the road. And if your pet does need further dental treatment, such as a cavity filling or even an extraction, we can perform these services in our office as well.
