Benefits of Pet Dentistry

Regular dental care for your pet offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Prevention of dental disease: Routine teeth cleanings and dental exams can help prevent periodontal disease and other dental issues.
  • Improved overall health: Good oral hygiene can contribute to your pet’s overall health and longevity.
  • Fresher breath: Dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup, helping to eliminate bad breath in pets.
  • Pain relief: Addressing dental problems promptly can alleviate pain and discomfort for your pet, improving their quality of life.

When to Schedule a Pet Dental Appointment

We recommend scheduling a dental examination for your pet at least once a year. However, additional visits may be necessary depending on your pet’s oral health needs. If you notice any signs of dental problems or if it’s been more than a year since your pet’s last dental exam, don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule an appointment.
