Periodontal Disease is the most common disease among Pet's, affecting more than eight out of ten pet's over three years of age. Periodontal disease is an inflammation and/or infection of the gums and bone around your pet's teeth.
Symptoms include bad breath, red or swollen gums, yellow-brown crust near the gum line, loose or missing teeth, discomfort when mouth or gums are touched, and possible decreased appetite or weight loss due to difficulty chewing.
If left untreated, this can eventually lead to tooth loss.
The good news is that periodontal disease can be managed!
We would like to educate you about your pet's dental health.We can show you step-by-step preventative procedures and an overall understanding of what occurs before, during and after your pet's teeth and gums are cleaned.
Surprisingly, there are many similarities in recommendations offered by your veterinarian for your pet and those offered by your dentist to ensure your dental health. However, a thorough dental cleaning for your pet requires that they are safely under anesthesia in order to clean their teeth, both above and below the gum lines without discomfort.
