Peridontal Disease

Definition

Periodontal Disease is the #1 diagnosed disease in pets. Dental tartar and plaque are caused by a build up of food particles on the tooth.  Some types of food (like canned and moist food) increase this build up.  Some breeds of dogs (like poodles and chihuahuas) are more prone to dental disease.

Symptoms

  • Bad Breath
  • Redness Near Gum Line
  • Visible Tarter
  • Drooling
  • Bleeding from Mouth
  • Loss of Appetite 
  • Weight Loss
  • Broken or Loose Teeth

Dental disease reduces your pet's lifespan.  Dental tartar and plaque hold a large amount of bacteria.  That bacteria often goes to the heart, kidneys, and liver causing disease and death.  The tartar also leads to gingivitis and receding gums which are very painful for your pet.

Treatment

Our clinic offers anesthetic and non-anesthetic dental cleanings depending on the severity of your pets dental tarter. Our team is trained to remove the plaque and tarter from your pets mouth. Depending on your pets individual needs routine cleanings are recommended every 6-12 months.

Prevention

Bushing your pets teeth can significantly reduce the accumulation of plaque and tarter. Making brushing part of your pets daily routine is ideal but aim for at least 2-3 times per week for best results.
