Dental Disease & Your Pets
Dental disease is the most common illness afflicting cats and dogs. Known as periodontal disease, it affects the tissues of the mouth that hold teeth in place. In advanced stages, periodontal disease can cause permanent damage to these tissues and the jawbone, causing both pain and loss of teeth.
Periodontal disease is caused by the buildup of dead plaque on the teeth. Without regular brushing, the buildup can move below the gumline, where it can cause infection and loose teeth. When the disease progresses to this point, only a professional dental cleaning under anesthesia can safely and effectively remove the plaque and treat your pet’s mouth.
Symptoms of periodontal disease include:
- Bad breath
- Blood in saliva or water dish
- Excessive drooling
- Loose teeth
- Trouble eating
If you notice your pet exhibiting any of these symptoms, it’s possible that they are beginning to suffer from periodontal disease. You don’t need to worry: not only is the disease extremely common, but our Hurst veterinarians at Mayfair Village Animal Hospital are here to help you and your pet get their teeth clean again.
Dental Cleaning at Mayfair Village Animal Hospital
As an AAHA accredited animal hospital, the surgical suite at Mayfair Village Animal Hospital is fully equipped to monitor your pet during their dental cleanings under anesthesia. Our veterinary staff will scale, polish, and care for your pet’s teeth with an anti-plaque treatment to protect them from future buildup.
After your pet’s dental cleaning, your Hurst veterinarian will help you learn how to care for their teeth at home. Regular dental maintenance can go a long way to improving and preserving your pet’s quality of life.
