Dental disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats. Over 50% of cats and 85% of dogs over the age of 5 have dental problems that require professional treatment. The consequences of leaving dental disease untreated include:
- Oral pain and infection
- Loss of teeth
- Potential infection to major body organs
- Diminished quality of life
- Not eating & chomping, can be due to dental pain
Veterinary dentists use the same equipment and anesthesia as human dentists. They perform the same types of services – root canals, oral surgeries, restorations, orthodontia, etc. Animals that receive proper dental care live happier and healthier lives.
