The digestive process starts with your pet’s teeth and can become the gateway for oral diseases and parasites if not maintained. Not to mention, pets like dogs and cats use their mouths for a variety of activities including playing fetch, chewing, and licking. Without healthy teeth, a pet’s mouth can suffer, and the teeth can weaken.
If your dog or cat has bad breath or signs of gingivitis, it may be the early stages of periodontal disease. With proper pet dental care from professional cleanings and treatment, periodontal disease can be easily prevented. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, internal organ damage, and gum disease.
Our Dental Services
Pleasant Hill Animal Hospital provides pet teeth cleaning and oral hygiene care designed specifically for dogs and cats. We use ultrasound technology to clean the teeth above and below the gum line, the place where plaque buildup can lead to periodontal disease. We help stop cavities and gum disease before they start. For the smoother surfaces of the tooth, we use a polishing process that makes the tooth stronger and more resistant to plaque buildup. Let Pleasant Hill Animal Hospital improve the oral health of your pet by scheduling a teeth cleaning appointment today. You and your pet will both be smiling.
