The gold standard for preventing periodontal disease is a professional prophylaxis (teeth cleaning) in conjunction with home care. When treating periodontal disease, scaling and root planning is one of the most commonly used techniques in periodontal therapy.
What is Dental Disease in Pets?
According to the AVDS 80% of dogs and 70% of cats by the age 3 show signs of periodontal disease. Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most common conditions seen in pets today.
Home Dental Care
Brushing your pet’s teeth can go along way toward preventing dental disease. Some pets resist brushing, but most eventually accept it, especially if you start a brushing routine when your pet is young (10 weeks to 10 months). Aim at brushing your pet’s teeth once a day or at least 3 times a week.
