Dental Issues and Your Pet's Health
Keeping your pet healthy can be a challenge, to say the least. When planning their wellness regimen, don’t forget to include oral care. Pets make maximum use of their teeth throughout their lives. Regular dental care from All Pets Animal Hospital in Encinitas will help keep your pet’s teeth in the best of health by providing the following:
Protection against Dental Diseases
Early signs of gum disease aren’t easy to spot with the naked eye. As a pet owner, you may not notice signs of gingivitis or periodontal disease in your pup or kit until the damage is done. Your Encinitas veterinarian can detect signs of dental disease during a pet dental exam, enabling your pet to get treatment before too much damage is done.
Periodontal disease can spread quickly throughout your pet’s mouth, causing serious damage to teeth and gums, which could lead to tooth loss. If the infection enters your pet’s bloodstream, it can damage his kidneys, liver, and heart.
Oral cancer is another deadly disease that poses a risk to your pet’s health. Early detection and treatment of dental diseases is key to protecting your pet’s health and life.
Early Treatment of Dental Issues
In addition to dental diseases, animals can develop dental problems similar to those of people such as dental decay, fractured teeth, abscesses, bleeding gums, etc. The sooner these are diagnosed, the sooner your pet can get treatment before excessive damage is done. You can save your pet pain and suffering from treating dental problems early on. You’ll also save on treatment costs.
Dental Services We Offer
At All Pets Animal Hospital, we offer quality dental services to all kinds of pets, be they conventional or exotic. For your convenience, we can incorporate dental exams and cleanings into your pet’s wellness program.
Our dental exams entail checking teeth and gums for disease, breakage, abscesses and other dental problems. We’ll take digital x-rays to verify tooth health and check for hidden signs of disease.
Dental cleanings are performed under anesthesia to protect your pet from pain. Your Encinitas veterinarian will scale your pet’s teeth to remove plaque and tartar and clean under the gum line where diseases start. We’ll also polish his teeth to leave them smooth and shiny.
