Dentistry

How healthy is your pet’s mouth?

Your animal companion’s teeth aren’t just for chewing food. They can actually play a role in how long your best friend will live, and even improve the quality of those years. That’s why making dental care a priority is so important. The team at Advanced Veterinary Care is trained in delivering professional pet dental services, including routine prevention and advanced care. We will also work closely with you to help you implement critical in-home dental care habits for your pet.

Prevention Is the Best Medicine

Just as daily brushing and regular visits to the dentist help keep your own teeth healthy, routine care is also essential to your animal friend. At Advanced Veterinary Care, we recommend bringing your loved one in for a dental exam at least once a year. This will allow us to identify the signs of potential oral health problems early. It will also provide the opportunity to take preventative measures, such as professional cleanings and polishing to protect against plaque buildup. The more proactive we are with your pet’s dental health, the better.

At-Home Dental Care

In addition to the routine care your pet receives in our office, his or her home life should also include regular dental care. This means brushing your companion’s teeth at least three times per week. It may also involve the use of certain products that are designed to support healthy teeth and gums in pets. If you need assistance with any of these things, our team would be happy to help.

Advanced Dental Services

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, oral health problems still crop up. It’s important that we address these issues as quickly and effectively as possible. Our advanced dental care services will help get all of your companion’s oral conditions under control. Whether it’s extraction of diseased teeth or oral surgery, we’ve got you covered.

Animals that are experiencing dental problems often exhibit the following signs and symptoms:

  • Bad breath
  • Pawing at the face
  • Swollen mouth
  • Inflamed or bleeding gums
  • Yellow, broken or missing teeth
  • Changes in chewing or eating habits
  • Pain when touched near the mouth

Any of these signs should warrant a trip to the vet. Even if you’ve never given your pet’s oral health a second thought, it’s never too late to start. Let’s partner together with the goal of seeing your loved one enjoy a clean, healthy smile for years to come.
