Your pet’s dental health is one of the cornerstones of their overall health and wellbeing. Keeping your canine or feline friend’s teeth sparkling clean is not only good for their teeth, but for their whole constitution. Plaque and tartar build-up cause gingivitis and periodontal disease which can then lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease has been linked to many diseases in cats and dogs, including heart and kidney disease. These diseases are common causes for decreased life spans in dogs and cats.
The good news
Daily brushing can help to delay the onset of periodontal disease, by removing the plague before it starts to calcify, forming dental calculus that can only be removed by scaling under anaesthetic.
Annual dental examinations help your veterinarian to identify potential problems and make the necessary recommendations to prevent further dental disease. In most dogs and cats annual teeth cleaning procedures are necessary to maintain adequate dental health.
This will relieve the pain and inflammation associated with periodontal disease, help prevent tooth loss, delay the onset of some age-related diseases and keep their breath fresh.
