   Periodontal disease (gum disease) is one of the most common diseases affecting dogs and cats. Bacteria and plaque accumulate on the teeth and lead to the formation of tartar. As tartar deposits grow, gum disease and infections set in and eventually lead to tooth loss. While periodontal disease is entirely preventable, when left untreated the chronic infections in the mouth can contribute to the cause of heart, kidney, liver disease, and much more. At Angel Animal Hospital we offer ultrasonic cleaning, scaling, polishing and fluoride treatment. We also recommend preventative measures such as teeth brushing, oral rinsing, and special tartar preventing diets. Call us today to schedule a pre-dental examination.

Reasons for regular dental check-ups: 

  • Avoid tooth loss due to periodontal disease. 
  • Help your pet avert unnecessary pain.
  • Help your pet maintain healthy and functional teeth. 
  • Improve foul breath.
  • Prevent potential damage to the brain, heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys.

Some simple home hygiene tips are: 

  • Brushing your pet’s teeth as little as one time a week can cut down on 50-60% of tartar build-up. 
  • Dry pet food is better for teeth than canned food; it causes abrasion to tooth surfaces when chewed, helping remove tartar build-up. Other treats such as raw-hide can also help remove built-up plaque.
  • There are many pet toys that support dental health. Buying your pets these toys not only entertains them, but offers a dual purpose in helping clean teeth.

Remember, creating a smooth clean tooth surface makes it more difficult for tartar and plaque to build up!
