Picture this: You never brush your teeth or visit the dentist. It wouldn’t take long for things to go downhill in your mouth—rotten teeth, inflamed and painful gums, infections, and difficulty eating. Bacteria from periodontal disease could even spread through your bloodstream and cause other severe health issues!
Now, think about your dog or cat. Some folks might chuckle at the idea of brushing their pet’s teeth or taking them for a dental cleaning, but the truth is, by age three, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of periodontal disease. Regular dental check-ups help maintain good oral hygiene and prevent future problems.
At Adamston Veterinary Clinic, we offer comprehensive pet oral health services, including:
- Dental exams
- Ultrasonic scaling & polishing of the teeth
- Diagnosis & treatment of periodontal disease
- Gingival tumor removals
- Gingival flap procedures
In line with the American Veterinary Medical Association guidelines, Adamston Veterinary Clinic performs cleanings and dental work only on anesthetized pets. We require a routine blood test before the procedure to ensure your pet is healthy enough for anesthesia. Trust us to care for your pet’s dental health and brighten their pearly whites!
