Pet Dental Care in Manson
Pet Dental Care can be difficult to achieve at home. Daily teeth brushing is the most effective way to maintain dental health, but can be very difficult due to time restrictions and pet willingness. Plaque builds up on teeth daily and eventually turns into the dark brown cement-like material called Tartar and Calculus. This material works its way up under the gumline and allows bacteria in the mouth to get into the teeth roots causing gingivitis, bad breath, painful gums and destruction of tooth roots. Once the bacterial infection has invaded the gums, the bacteria are spread throughout the body and can cause chronic infections like heart valve infection ( bacterial endocarditis). This process can be stopped by having your pet’s teeth ultrasonically cleaned to remove plaque, tartar and calculi. At this time any permanently damaged teeth can be extracted to remove the infection. If you have noticed painful chewing or bad breath in any of your pets, they may benefit from a dental cleaning.
