Pets with good dental hygiene live longer, healthier lives. Dental plaque and tartar build up on your pet’s teeth.
This buildup causes bacteria to enter the bloodstream through the gums, which may damage internal organs over time.
Studies show that 75-85% of all pets over the age of six have some form of periodontal disease.
Early treatment is essential to prevent further damage to the structures in the mouth and to prevent tooth loss.
We recommend annual dental exams as part of your complete wellness program.
However, if your pet develops bad smelling breath or if you notice a decrease in appetite a dental exam is essential.
Dental procedures at CRAH include the following:
- oral exam under anesthesia
- full mouth digital X-rays
- calculus removal from the visible part of the teeth as well as sub-gingival (under the gum line) scaling and root planning
- tooth polishing
- post cleaning exam
