We now know that poor dental hygiene not only causes discomfort in the mouth, halitosis (bad breath) and loss of teeth it can also cause severe disease elsewhere in the body. Liver, kidney and heart problems are all associated with bad teeth because of the entry of harmful bacterial from the mouth into the bloodstream. The early signs of dental disease are gingivitis (inflamed, red gums) and the buildup of tartar on the teeth. This progresses to gum recession and loss of bone surrounding the tooth with the end result being loss of the tooth itself.

Cats in particular also suffer from erosions in the tooth enamel which are much harder to spot but can cause severe pain.

If you recognise any of these symptoms contact us immediately for a complete dental health checkup and treatment plan.

We have modern, hygienic dental equipment (just like your dentist has) allowing us to perform a simple scale and polish or the surgical extraction of large teeth.

Early intervention will keep your pet’s teeth clean and healthy and may significantly extend their lifespan.
