It is important for both dogs and cats to have regular dental exams to ensure that their teeth and gums are healthy. Dental disease is a common problem in pets, and if left untreated, it can lead to more serious health issues such as infections, organ damage, and even tooth loss.
During a veterinary dental exam, the veterinarian will check your pet’s teeth and gums for signs of decay, infection, or other issues. They may also take x-rays to get a better look at the inside of your pet’s mouth and check for any problems that may not be visible on the surface.
The veterinarian may also clean your pet’s teeth during the exam. This involves scaling and polishing the teeth to remove plaque and tartar, which can cause gum disease if left untreated. They may also recommend a dental cleaning procedure called a “prophylaxis" if your pet has severe dental disease.
It is important to keep up with your pet’s dental care at home as well. This can involve brushing or brushing your pet’s teeth regularly, providing them with dental chews and toys, and feeding them a diet that is formulated to support dental health.
If you have any concerns about your pet’s dental health or if it has been a while since your pet has had a dental exam, be sure to schedule an appointment with your veterinarian. They can assess your pet’s dental health and recommend any necessary treatment.
