Bad breath is not only unpleasant but it is first sign of dental
disease. Bad breath is caused by bacterial infection in mouth, gums and tooth
roots. With time it causes plaque formation on the tooth surface and
development of tartar. This further leads to gum redness(gingivitis) gum
recession, exposure of roots, tooth mobility and loss of teeth. Your pet will
feel difficulty in chewing food, dropping food, drooling, loss of teeth. Giving bones and treats are not much helpful
to keep the teeth healthy. Best way to keep the teeth healthy is timely oral
examination and advice of your veterinarian.
Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet’s health, because dental disease can be associated with other serious health problems such as heart disease and kidney disease. But how do you know if your pet has a healthy mouth? We will examine your pet’s teeth and gums to help determine if there are any dental issues you should know about. After a brief visual examination, we may recommend a more detailed examination (which requires sedation), a dental cleaning, or options for at-home dental care.
