Pet Dentistry

You may notice your pet has chronic bad breath, broken teeth, or perhaps even abnormal drooling. These are some signs that your pet may be experiencing the early signs of periodontal disease, which affects more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats before the age of three. Sadly, dental problems are also quite common in pet rabbits too, resulting in overgrown teeth, spurs, tooth root abscesses, and broken teeth.

Periodontal disease refers to inflammation of the gums and bone that surround and support your pet’s teeth, and it has been linked to long-term health conditions such as liver or heart disease.

Most cases of periodontal disease are not visibly noticeable. In other words, even if your pet’s teeth are pearly white and they seem fine, there could be tartar buildup hiding below the gum line that can only be detected with digital radiographs during dental cleanings.

Some breeds and lifestyles are more susceptible to dental infections or inflammation.
