Importance of Pet Dental Care
As with humans, good dental care is a part of maintaining general health. Healthy teeth allow your pet to consume the right nutrition to keep organs and cellular processes functioning well. In addition, dental problems can also develop bacteria that can migrate to the heart, liver or kidneys, causing health problems in these organs of the body.
Issues A Dental Screening Can Reveal
Your Dyer veterinarian will carefully examine the mouth and teeth to detect proper meshing of teeth, damaged teeth or lesions in the oral tissue that could indicate a poor function of the teeth. Some animals retain baby teeth that interfere with the proper alignment of adult teeth. Other animals may break teeth during their teething months. When plaque builds up on teeth, it can cause gum disease and loosening of teeth.
Common Pet Dental Problems
Veterinarians deal with a number of common dental issues in pets, such as retained baby teeth, damaged teeth from accidents, decayed or broken teeth, as well as heavy plaque and tartar deposits that cause gum disease and bad breath. If your pet seems to have difficulty chewing, salivates excessively or paws at his mouth, the problem may lie in a bad tooth.
Your Crete Veterinarian Can Help Keep Your Pet’s Teeth Healthy
Your veterinarian may recommend teeth cleaning to remove the buildup of tartar and plaque that promotes gum disease and bacteria. Only approved anesthetics are used for these procedures. In addition, as your pet ages, the vet can monitor tooth problems that may require extraction to allow the animal to feed comfortably. These measures can also eliminate bad breath in pets that is often a problem for owners.
