League City Veterinary Dental Care
Healthy Mouths & Happy Smiles
Your pet’s overall healthcare should include regular dental care as well. Much like humans, pets often don’t like going to see their dentist, but it’s important that they maintain a dental routine in order to protect their overall health. Animal Kingdom Pet Hospital is here for all of your pet’s dental needs. As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited animal hospital, our League City veterinarians are equipped to handle a variety of dental services for your pet. We want to keep your pet’s mouth healthy so they’re smiling at your side for years to come.
Periodontal Disease & Your Pet
Periodontal disease refers to an infection of the gums which is the result of untreated plaque buildup. It’s the most common disease affecting cats and dogs, and it’s entirely preventable. When left untreated, periodontal disease can cause damage to your pet’s teeth and jawbone.
Symptoms of periodontal disease include:
- Bad breath
- Blood in saliva
- Difficulty eating
- Loose teeth
- Sensitivity in and around the mouth
If your pet is exhibiting any of these symptoms, bring them into Animal Kingdom Pet Hospital for an oral exam. We’ll be able to help get your pet smiling again.
Periodontal disease is caused by plaque that spreads below the gumline. Without regular brushing, dead plaque can build up on your pet’s teeth, encouraging more build up, which eventually spreads below the gums and into the tissue surrounding your pet’s teeth. Once the disease progresses below the gumline, professional dental cleaning under anesthesia is the only way to properly remove the plaque buildup.
Dental Cleaning Under Anesthesia
Professional dental cleanings require that your pet be put under general anesthesia. Our surgical suite is equipped with top of the line monitoring equipment to keep your pet safe throughout the cleaning process. We’ll also be sure to monitor them closely while they come out from under anesthesia so that they wake up safely and comfortably.
During your pet’s cleaning, we’ll use tools similar to those used by human dentists to remove plaque and polish your pet’s teeth. We’ll also apply an anti-plaque treatment to deter future plaque buildup.
After your pet’s dental cleaning, we’ll help you learn how to keep up with their oral health. We recommend that you schedule regular checkups as part of your pet’s overall healthcare plan to stay on top of your pet’s health needs.
