More than 85% of dogs and cats over two years old suffer from some form of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease and related dental conditions (abscesses, gingival disorders, resorptive lesions, oral tumors, TMJ abnormalities, malocclusions, fractured and worn down teeth) directly correlate with heart, liver, and kidney diseases, making dental care one of the most important steps in your pet's preventative care plan.
Dental care needs to start early in your pet's life. A dental exam and cleaning are recommended at least once per year. By the time many dental conditions are diagnosed, they are often advanced. Many pets will start to show signs of dental disease by age three. Plaque hides behind the gum line, and often anesthesia is needed to provide a thorough cleaning. X-rays should also be taken to see if there is dental disease that isn't visible to the naked eye. Anesthesia is a safe and effective way to ensure your pets receive an accurate diagnosis and a complete cleaning. It also relieves the stress pets may feel during a dental exam and treatment.
Taking care of your pet's teeth at home is also important. From brushing their teeth to providing them with dental products, there are ways you can help mitigate dental disease in your pets.
