Oral and Dental Care

Oral and dental care is an important part of keeping your pet healthy. Unfortunately, oral and dental disease is one of the most common health problems seen in pets. Bacteria build up on the teeth, causing tartar to form. This can lead to gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums.

If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontal disease, which damages the tissues that support the teeth. In severe cases, tooth loss may occur. That stinky breath is more than an annoyance; it’s a warning sign!

To help prevent oral and dental diseases, Dawsonville Veterinary Hospital in Dawsonville, GA offers a variety of oral and dental care services. We recommend that all pets have a complete oral exam at least once a year. This allows us to detect any problems early and provide the necessary treatment. We also offer teeth cleaning and polishing, as well as dental extractions. While this may sound daunting, pet dental extractions are a fairly routine procedure that is performed by many veterinarians. The veterinarian will first numb the area around the tooth to be extracted. Then, using special instruments, the tooth will be removed. In most cases, the pet will be able to go home the same day as the procedure. While pet dental extractions may not be ideal, they are often necessary in order to keep our pets healthy and comfortable.

In addition, we can provide guidance on at-home oral care routines, such as brushing your pet’s teeth on a regular basis. By providing comprehensive oral and dental care, we can help your pet stay healthy and happy for years to come.
