How Important is Pet Dental Care Really?
Your pet's dental health has such a powerful influence over its overall well-being. This is because bacteria in the mouth can infect the gums, damage the teeth, and even leach into the bloodstream where they could go on to infection organs, joints, and other tissues throughout your pet's body.
In fact, good dental health could extend your pet' lifespan by 1 to 3 years or more. Plus, dogs and cats with healthy teeth avoid common painful and uncomfortable symptoms associated with pet dental disease, including sore and bleeding gums and difficulty chewing and swallowing (let alone the unpleasant symptom for you—bad breath!).
Possible Pet Dental Health Problems Our Veterinarian Team Can Diagnose
Some of the most common pet dental problems we evaluate and treat at our clinic include:
- Tartar and plaque build up
- Periodontal disease (gum disease and inflammation)
- Oral cysts and tumors
- Broken, missing, extra, loose, or infected teeth
Dental Treatment Offered by Our North Vancouver Veterinary Staff
Early detection with our North Vancouver veterinary team is essential for proper dental care, as many dental diseases don't have any warning signs for a long time. Through routine cleaning and inspection, our staff can prevent many of the above-mentioned diseases or slow their progression and/or lessen their severity if a problem does exist.
Common pet dental treatments include:
- Comprehensive inspection and cleaning of teeth and gums
- Tooth extractions
- Pet parent education on how to maintain proper pet dental health at home (vet-approved chew toys, at-home tooth brushing techniques, etc.)
