Dental hygiene and care is not just important for humans but pets as well. The tools used to treat humans and animals are quite similar, however, the experience is quite different.
At Animal Specialist Clinic, we have a fully functional and revolutionary IM3 dental suite which enables us to perform intricate and meticulous testing and scans to provide you with professional feedback. The process begins with our veterinary dentist performing an oral examination on your pet during the consultation period to determine where the discomfort stems from. Most dental diseases are rooted underneath the gum line, an area that is not accessible to the naked eye. Thus, deep cleaning and analysis are done under anesthesia. Our main animal dental care services include conducting dental scaling (checking and eliminating plaque or tartar production), polishing to make canine and feline teeth sparkly white and more.
Having your pet registered for a dental check-up at least once a year is necessary to ensure that your pet is healthy or to detect early signs of infection. We are always here to help you with your pet’s dental needs but here are a few ways you can make certain that your pet’s dental hygiene is up to the mark.
Animals are very good at hiding their pain, so you may have to look closely to find signs of oral irritation. A dental examination and prophylaxis is the only way to diagnose certain conditions. If your pet seems to be experiencing any of these symptoms, we recommend you book in a consultation as soon as possible:
Ignoring these symptoms can lead to behavioural changes, lowered appetite, continuous bad breath and severe diseases.
Some common dental diseases in pets to look out for are plaque, gingivitis, biofilm and periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is the most popular in cats and dogs. They usually start showing signs when they are three years old. It is important to detect periodontal disease in advance. If it is not treated promptly, it’s effects can worsen as time progresses. Periodontal disease not only affects your pet’s oral health but also acts on kidney, liver and heart muscles. If you’re wondering whether pets suffer from decaying teeth, it usually never happens as they encounter more fractures due to intense biting and chewing while eating or playing.
As pet owners and pet lovers, it is our duty to understand what our little ones are trying to communicate with us and help them live a happy and healthy life.
