Gingivitis and periodontal disease are destructive and progressive conditions. They destroy your pet’s teeth and gums and can actually, in extreme cases, be dangerous enough to cause death. Bacteria cause the gradual destruction of your pet’s gums and those same bacteria can enter the bloodstream and become life threatening. Sometimes teeth fracture or become unstable, causing your pet pain.
If your pet has bad breath, gingivitis and periodontal disease may be the causes. Look for a buildup of yellowish or brownish material on the teeth and reddening of the gums. If these are present, it may be time for a dental cleaning. Good oral health can extend your pet’s longevity and quality of life.
Our dental services include teeth cleaning, polishing, tooth extractions, dental x-rays, and minor oral surgery.
