Pet Dental Prophylaxis:
A Preventative Approach

Pet dental prophylaxis, commonly known as dental cleaning, is vital to proactive veterinary care. This procedure focuses on thoroughly removing plaque and tartar buildup from your pet’s teeth, addressing potential dental issues before they escalate. Routine dental prophylaxis contributes to oral health and prevents complications such as gum disease and tooth decay.

Key Benefits of Pet Dental Prophylaxis

Prevention of Dental Issues

Dental prophylaxis helps prevent common dental problems, including periodontal disease and gingivitis, ensuring your pet’s continued oral health.

Reduced Risk of Tooth Decay

Regular dental cleanings minimize the risk of tooth decay, promoting the longevity of your pet’s teeth and gums.

Fresh Breath

Dental prophylaxis eliminates the bacteria responsible for bad breath, leaving your pet with fresher breath and a healthier smile. 

Key Benefits of Pet Dental Extractions

Pain Relief

Extracting compromised teeth helps alleviate pain and discomfort associated with dental issues.

Prevention of Spread

Extracting severely decayed or infected teeth prevents the spread of infection to surrounding oral structures.

Improved Oral Health

Dental extractions improve oral health, reducing the risk of complications further down the road.

Pet Dental Extractions: Addressing Dental Challenges

In some cases, dental extractions may be necessary to address specific dental challenges. Extractions may be recommended if your pet experiences:

  • Severe Tooth Decay:  Advanced decay that poses a risk to adjacent teeth or causes significant discomfort.
  • Fractured or Broken Teeth:  Teeth that are fractured or broken beyond repair may require extraction to prevent further complications.
  • Advanced Gum Disease:  In cases of advanced periodontal disease, extraction may be necessary to protect surrounding oral structures and prevent additional issues.
