Dog Dental Exam in Dalton

Dog Dental Care

Imagine if you never brushed your teeth or had them cleaned. Pretty frightening, right? As you can imagine, things would eventually start to go very, very bad inside your mouth: teeth would rot and decay, gums would become inflamed and infected. Bacteria from those rotting teeth would eventually travel into your bloodstream and could cause other serious health problems. And we haven’t even mentioned the daily, debilitating pain.

It’s the same scenario for your dog. While some people might laugh at the idea of brushing their pet’s teeth or taking them for a dental cleaning, the fact is that by age three, 80% of dogs have some evidence of periodontal disease. Periodic dental exams for your dog help maintain proper oral hygiene and prevent future problems.

Preventive Dental Care

Brushing your dog’s teeth several times per week is the best way to prevent plaque and tartar build-up. Interested in learning how to brush your dog’s teeth?
