Benefits of Pet Dental

Pets who fail to get dental care may have very bad breath or tooth pain. Correcting this problem after it becomes severe can be very costly for pet owners and can also be uncomfortable for pets. Keeping up with your pet's dental care can help prevent discomfort and expensive dental care bills. In addition, by correcting bad breath, getting pet dental care can make spending time with your pet more enjoyable.

Symptoms of Pet Dental Disease

Recognizing the symptoms of pet dental disease can help you decide when it's time to bring your pet to the veterinarian for a dental cleaning.

  • Bleeding, red, or inflamed gums
  • Stained teeth
  • Very bad breath
  • Missing teeth or loose teeth
  • Difficulty eating hard foods

Pet Dental Services Offered By The Veterinary Clinic in Brunswick

At The Veterinary Clinic, we offer the following dental services for pets in the area:

  • Dental exams - Our dental exams help us identify when pets are suffering from periodontal disease. If we find evidence of dental disease, we'll make recommendations for treatment. We recommend that all pets get a dental exam at least once annually.
  • Pet teeth cleaning - During our pet teeth cleaning service, we'll make your pet's tooth enamel slick and white. By polishing the enamel, we help prevent food from sticking to your pet's teeth.
  • Tooth extraction - If your pet's tooth becomes infected, he or she may need to have the tooth extracted. This can prevent infection from spreading to other parts of your pet's mouth.

Taking Care of Your Pet's Teeth at Home

In addition to bringing your pet to the veterinarian for animal teeth cleaning services, we also recommend cleaning your pet's teeth at home. Pet owners who brush their pet's teeth should use toothpaste formulated for pets because human toothpaste is toxic for pets. If you're not sure how to brush your pet's teeth for the first time, talk to your pet's veterinarian for instruction.
