It is important for dogs to get dental cleanings. Dogs can get gum disease. In fact, it’s one of the most common diseases in dogs today.
- Food particles and bacteria are allowed to stay along the gum line.
- This later turns into plaque.
- Gum irritation begins.
- This leads to a condition called gingivitis.
- If left untreated, your cat can get periodontal disease.
You can tell if your dog has gingivitis by a reddening of gums along the the teeth. Periodontal disease can soon follow if the gingivitis is not treated.
Periodontal disease can start in one area of your dog’s mouth and spread to other areas if nothing is done about it. There are different stages of periodontal disease and it is treatable.
Periodontal disease can affect any dog of any age. Arranging for your dog to get a good dental cleaning at our clinic is a great way to prevent any form of gum disease.
Any form of dental illness or disease can lead to other health issues in your dog’s body. Getting your dog a dental cleaning AT LEAST once a year is not only a preventative of certain mouth-related health issues, it will also prevent other issues that directly stem from you dog having a dental illness.
