Like humans, pets can develop various dental problems such as gingivitis, cavities, and tooth decay. Teeth cleaning is crucial in ensuring your pet does not develop these diseases.
At Hardin Animal Hospital in Stockton, CA, we offer routine pet dental cleaning services. We are devoted to providing exceptional services, providing comprehensive and safe procedures using state-of-the-art dental equipment. We create a customized cleaning plan for every pet, depending on their oral condition and medical history.
Why Pets Need Teeth Cleaning
We recommend that you take your pet to an animal hospital for teeth cleaning at least once a year. During the cleaning process, our veterinarian will also check for any signs of a health problem. However, if your pet develops any dental issues, it's essential to take him or her to our vet for a checkup instead of waiting for the routine dental cleaning. Common signs of a possible dental issue include:
- Bad breath
- Broken teeth
- Loose teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Problems in chewing
- Bleeding in the mouth
- Swelling around the mouth
Make sure to evaluate your pet's mouth for any sign of abnormality.
What Is Involved in The Pet Dental Cleaning Process?
A routine pet dental cleaning involves an oral examination, teeth cleaning, and removal of tartar and plaque. Your pet will be put under anesthesia during the process. This ensures your pet is safe and comfortable while we inspect and treat his or her mouth. After the removal of the tartar and plaque, the teeth are then polished.
How to Maintain Your Pet's Oral Health at Home
Brushing your pet's teeth is one of the most effective ways of preventing the development of dental problems. There are several brushing products available for you to use at home. Talk to our veterinarian to get advice on which ones are safe and effective for your pet's teeth. After teeth cleaning, our vet may recommend a product for plague prevention. These products are used while brushing your pet's teeth. They cover the teeth, preventing plaque formation.
