Pet Dental Care

The Dangers of Dental Neglect

Neglecting your pet's dental health can lead to a cascade of problems. Plaque and tartar buildup, the result of everyday munching, hardens over time, causing gum inflammation (gingivitis). Left untreated, gingivitis progresses to periodontal disease, which damages the jawbone and leads to tooth loss. Beyond the obvious discomfort, severe dental disease can contribute to heart, liver, and kidney problems due to bacteria entering the bloodstream through inflamed gums.

The Power of Preventative Care

The good news is that these issues are largely preventable with proper dental care. Regular pet teeth cleaning, performed by a trusted veterinarian at Brazos Bend Animal Hospital, can play a vital role in maintaining your pet's oral health. These cleanings are far more than a basic brush-up. Under safe anesthesia, a veterinarian on our veterinary team performs a thorough oral exam, identifies any underlying issues like gum disease or tooth decay, and removes plaque and tartar buildup using specialized equipment. This comprehensive approach ensures a deep clean for even hard-to-reach areas, while anesthesia guarantees your pet's comfort and safety throughout the procedure.

The Benefits of Pet Dental Care

The benefits of regular pet dental care extend far beyond preventing painful toothaches and bad breath. Here's a glimpse of the positive impact it can have on your furry friend:

●          Improved Appetite and Digestion: Healthy teeth allow your pet to chew comfortably and efficiently, promoting proper digestion and preventing weight loss due to difficulty eating.

●          Enhanced Overall Health: By preventing bacteria from entering the bloodstream through inflamed gums, dental care reduces the risk of heart, liver, and kidney problems.

●          Boosted Energy and Playfulness: Pain-free teeth and a healthy mouth mean your pet can enjoy playtime, walks, and food without discomfort, leading to a happier and more energetic companion.
