Pet Dentistry in Dallas

Happy Pets Have Healthy Smiles

When thinking about your pet’s health, do you remember to think about their teeth? Oral health is an important part of your pet’s overall wellbeing, but is often neglected by even the most thoughtful of pet parents. At A&B Animal Clinic, we make sure your pet’s mouth is treated with the same care and attention we devote to the rest of their body.

Protect your pet’s oral health by scheduling an exam with our Dallas veterinarians. Call or contact us online today.

Dental Health & Periodontal Disease

If your pet has smelly breath, don’t dismiss it. Because “dog breath” is a ubiquitous idiom, pet owners will just assume that it’s a fact of life, but it could be a sign that there’s a problem with their oral health. Bad breath is a symptom of periodontal disease, which is considered the most common disease in cats and dogs. At A&B Animal Clinic, we can help you figure out if it’s something more to worry about.

Does your pet exhibit any of the following symptoms?

  • Bad breath
  • Blood in saliva or water dish
  • Difficulty eating
  • Drooling
  • Loose teeth

If you answered yes to one or more of the above, it’s possible your pet is suffering from periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease occurs from an excessive buildup of plaque on the teeth. When the plaque dies, it hardens on the teeth. Regular brushing can dislodge plaque, especially in the early stages of buildup. However, if plaque is left on the teeth, it continues to build up, creating more space for more plaque. If this buildup moves below the gumline, it can lead to an infection of the gums and damage to the tissues that hold the teeth in place. Without treatment, this can cause permanent damage to your pet’s mouth.

Dental Cleanings at A&B Animal Clinic

In order to get rid of the buildup of plaque on your pet’s teeth, our Dallas veterinarians may recommend a professional dental cleaning. Dental cleanings for pets involve general anesthesia. As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited animal hospital, A&B Animal Clinic is fully equipped to keep your pet safe and monitored throughout the cleaning process.

During the cleaning, a veterinarian will scale and polish your pet’s teeth to get rid of all the plaque buildup. Once your pet’s teeth are clean, we will apply an anti-plaque treatment to your pet’s teeth to help protect them from future plaque buildup.

Before we send your pet home, our we will help you learn how to care for your pet’s teeth at home. Preventative dental care and maintenance is a great way to keep your pet healthy and smiling for years to come!
