Dental health is so important for our pets overall health. keeping our pets teeth clear from plaque (bacteria) helps lower the risk of contributing factors of dental disease. Such factors include but are not limited to heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes. But how can something so minor cause such life threatening issues? The build up of plaque on the teeth can cause the gums to become very inflamed and a breeding ground for infection. When the gums become exposed to the bacteria through a small cut, the bacteria makes its way into the bloodstream circulating to the heart, kidney and liver.
How can I keep from this happening to my pet?
Brushing your pets teeth from a young age can help start the process of good dental hygiene. There are also certain types of toys and treats (such as Greenies and Ora-vet) that can help with dental hygiene at home. As your pet gets older and is not used to brushing, looking for some signs of dental disease can help get them to your vet faster. These signs include inflamed/red gums, halitosis (bad breath), pawing/rubbing at face, not wanting to eat on one side of the mouth or just refusing to eat their diet.
Though home care can be sufficient enough for some pets, a dental cleaning may be needed to help get your pet back their pearly whites! Teeth cleanings are done under anesthesia and include the following; evaluation of the mouth/teeth, cleaning all plaque and tartar off the teeth, extracting any teeth that need to be taken out and polishing to help keep the enamel from further damage.
If you have any questions about dental disease or teeth cleaning themselves, please give the clinic a call!
