Dental Care Clinics

Preventative homecare is crucial in the battle against feline/ canine oral disease but with so many product on the market just which is the right one for you?
Brushing your pet’s teeth is by far the most beneficial homecare regime. Teeth should be brushed at least once a day as plaque can calcify in as little as 48 hours and can then start causing gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) which then progresses to periodontal disease. Calcified plaque causes the unsightly tartar you see on your pet’s teeth and causes a rough surface where more plaque can attach and the vicious cycle begins. Ideally we want to remove the plaque before this happens and this is done by brushing, similar to how you brush your own teeth. Have a look at our video on how to start brushing your pets teeth.

So why do we care so much?

Periodontal disease can progress very quickly and can lead from gingivitis (where it is only affecting the gums) to periodontitis and spread to infect other structures of the tooth such as the supporting ligament and even bone. This can result in a substantial amount of pain for your pet and can eventually lead to tooth loss. Periodontitis is irreversible and in the majority of cases tooth extraction is the only option. As our patients are not the most obliging, treatment must be carried out under General Anaesthetic. If left untreated, periodontitis has been shown to lead to problems relating to the heart, liver, kidneys and even respiratory problems.
