Professional Pet Teeth Cleaning: The Benefits

Dental care is just as important for pets as it is for humans. Many of the same problems in human teeth can also happen in pet teeth. That's why it's essential to have your pet's teeth cleaned by a professional.

South Granville Animal Hospital provides professional pet teeth cleaning services that help prevent problems. Here are the benefits of professional teeth cleaning and how it can help keep your pet's smile healthy and sparkling!

Plaque and Tartar Buildup

Like humans, plaque and tartar can build up on pet teeth over time. This plaque can lead to dental problems, such as gum disease, tooth loss, and bad breath. However, a thorough cleaning can remove plaque and tartar before they can cause these problems. Then, probiotic treatments can be applied.

Problems Detected with a Dental Examination

During professional pet teeth cleaning, our trained veterinarian will examine your pet's teeth and gums for any signs of dental problems. They'll conduct a dental examination to check for tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. This way, dental problems can be detected early and treated before they become serious.

Professional Polishing

Our trained veterinarian or dental technician can apply a sealant to your dog or cat's teeth, making them smoother and more resistant to tartar buildup. This resistance is especially beneficial for pets prone to gum disease. Routine polishing can also help reduce bad breath and produce fresh breath.

Cleaning Ensures Healthy Gums

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in dogs and cats. Finding gum disease is crucial before it leads to more severe health problems. A professional teeth cleaning will remove tartar and plaque from your pet's teeth, helping prevent gum disease and leading to fresh breath.

Anesthesia-Free Dental Cleaning

Some pets may be anxious about having their teeth cleaned or may not tolerate anesthesia. If this is the case, we provide anesthesia-free dental cleanings. This dental cleaning does not require your pet to be put under anesthesia and is just as effective at removing disease-causing plaque and tartar.

Surface Cleaning of the Teeth

The surface of your pet's teeth will be cleaned during a professional dental cleaning. This cleaning is essential because it removes buildup on the teeth that can lead to dental problems. Surface cleaning also helps prevent bad breath.
