Why Does My Pet Need a Professional Teeth Cleaning?

Dogs and cats are naturally curious and open-minded creatures, often putting anything into their mouth that can fit. Various food particles and foreign objects can get trapped in their oral cavity, which breeds bacteria and could lead to periodontal disease and even worse issues if they eventually travel into the bloodstream.

Here are some common signs that your pet could possibly be suffering from dental disease and infection due to tartar buildup and plaque:

  • Yellow or brown buildup on the teeth
  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Changes in eating or chewing habits
  • Pawing at the face
  • Loose teeth
  • Depression

Our Thorough Dental Treatment for Dogs & Cats

We will provide valuable insight and useful tips for maintaining your pet's dental health for the long term. Our skilled and detail-oriented pet dentists are passionate about the wellness of all animals, and our office is equipped with effective tools and technology (radiographs), delivering satisfying results in a relaxed environment.

When you bring your furry family member into our office, our gentle team will provide a pre-anesthetic checkup, where we carefully review their mouth, teeth, and gums. This ensures our team that your pet is healthy enough for a successful dental treatment and that no complications could arise when under anesthesia.

Once we've determined that our services are the safe and prudent choice for your pet, our comprehensive teeth cleaning services will begin. The dental cleaning is generally a short procedure, and you'll be able to bring your pet home once treatment is complete and they've woken from the anesthetic.

Dental Work for Dogs & Cats FAQ

We understand that seeing significant tartar buildup on your sweet pet's teeth can be disturbing and alarming. Our friendly and knowledgeable team understands that you have questions, and we are happy to provide the answers. Some frequently asked questions regarding dental treatment for dogs and cats include:

How do I know if my dog or cat needs a professional dental cleaning?

Tartar buildup and plaque are clear indicators that it's time for a cleaning. We can evaluate their oral health and determine if they are due for a cleaning, but It's a good rule for your pet to receive a cleaning or exam at least once per year. Brushing your pet's teeth at home can help to prevent tartar buildup, but once it's already present, they will need a professional cleaning.

Yes, but only for the short term. Our professional cleanings can make a huge difference in improving your cat or dog's breath, but there is no permanent cure. Plaque and tartar will continue to build, causing bad breath. Regular tooth brushing and water additives can help keep your pet's breath smelling decent for longer, but it's unlikely they will ever have breath as fresh as your own.

For the comfort of your pet and the safety of our caring team, we only perform deeper cleaning services on anesthetized pets. Our deeper cleaning methods are a lengthier and more involved procedure that requires meticulous effort to fully eradicate all harmful bacteria growing in your pet's mouth. We can't simply ask them to sit still for the time we need. Our caring veterinarians and staff minimize health risks when your pet is under anesthesia, using focused protocols and diligent monitoring.
