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. The problem begins when plaque and tartar are allowed to build up on your pet’s teeth. Plaque harbors the bacteria, which can infect gum tissue and the roots of teeth resulting in disease and tooth loss. Besides the negative impact on the oral health, bacteria can enter the blood stream through the large blood vessels located near the gums and teeth. At this stage, the organs with the highest blood flow are most susceptible to infections: lungs, heart, kidneys, liver and even the brain. Damage to these organs caused by infection can shorten the lives of our pets.

Our dental hygienists are highly qualified to perform a thorough dental exam on your pet without the use of anesthesia. During the examination our hygienists will chart any abnormalities or concerns regarding your pet’s oral health. The next step is removing all of the plaque above and below the gum line. When we are finished removing the buildup, we will polish the teeth using a pumice. Following your pet’s dental exam our hygienists can assist you in getting started on a home maintenance program to ensure the overall health of your pet.
