Dental Problems and Symptoms

Pets cannot tell us when they experience dental pain, and your pet will often try to hide this pain out of instinct. Plaque and tartar buildup and loose or broken teeth are frequent causes of pet dental problems. Poor oral health can also lead to periodontal disease and potentially cause significant health complications. Other signs of dental issues in your pet include bad breath, discolored or broken teeth, bleeding gums, abnormal chewing, and loss of appetite. Contact your vet near you if your pet displays any of these symptoms.

Dental Treatments

Your veterinarian will develop an appropriate treatment plan if your pet experiences an acute dental issue or the annual exam spots a problem. Simple teeth cleanings can resolve many minor oral health issues in your pet. More severe dental health problems may require teeth fillings or extractions, especially if your pet has a loose or decayed tooth. Your vet may also perform a root canal or other dental surgery if your pet’s teeth are in poor condition. Talk with your veterinarian to determine the best treatment to protect your pet’s oral and overall health.

Prevention of Dental Problems

Effective pet dental care starts at home. Regularly brushing your pet’s teeth is vital for protecting its teeth from several significant dental health issues. Like your own dental care, daily brushing helps prevent tartar and plaque buildup. Pets typically do not develop cavities, but pets can develop periodontal diseases in and under the gums. Frequent brushing helps prevent these potentially significant oral health issues.

Besides daily brushing, your pet should have a complete dental exam during its annual checkup at the animal hospital. These allow your veterinarian to check for diseases, plaque and tartar buildup, and other oral health issues. Your veterinarian may recommend changes to your pet’s diet or provide dental chew toys to improve its oral health at home.
