All pets should have a complete, professional dental cleaning at least once a year. This is a procedure performed by a veterinarian while the pet is under general anesthesia. In addition to scaling and polishing the teeth, it includes a thorough oral exam, checking for loose and/or fractured teeth, and evaluating periodontal pockets, which can indicate bone loss.
Dental care in pets is just as important as it is in humans. In fact, poor oral health can actually shorten your pet’s life! Bad breath indicates bacteria, which can lead to gingivitis, pain, and tooth loss. Those bacteria can even travel to other organs, such as the heart and kidneys, and cause serious disease there. So, don’t wait–practice good dental hygiene for your pet BEFORE problems arise.
