Don't Skip Dental Care!
Joanna Holtz, DVM
One of the most common diseases seen in dogs and cats is gum and dental disease. Over 70% of our pets have infection in their mouths. Dental disease is often harder to identify as a pet owner since the area is more "hidden" by the lips. Dental and gum disease are most often present on the outside of the upper teeth and specifically the upper canines and carnassial (back molar) teeth. Common signs of dental disease include bad breath, difficulty / slower chewing food, tartar/calculus on the teeth, pain in the mouth, broken teeth, excessive drooling, swelling under the eye, bleeding from the mouth, rubbing the mouth, pain on opening the mouth, and chronic sneezing. Some animals will display several of these signs with dental disease while others may not demonstrate any of these signs even with significantly diseased mouths.
There are three things you can do to take care of your pets’ teeth.
Step 1. Visit a veterinarian at least once per year—just like your own dentist. The veterinarian will be able to assess your pets mouth and determine what steps are needed to keep your pet's mouth healthy.
Step 2. Have a professional dental cleaning and treatment of dental disease (if recommended by your veterinarian). Pets need to be anesthetized for proper dental care, and so owners need to be prepared for this process. Just like your dentist, gum surgery, x-rays, extractions, or even root canals may need to be performed. X-rays are especially important since 2/3 of the tooth is hidden and ½ of all dental disease is below the gums!
Step 3. Perform dental care at home. Believe it or not, brushing your pets’ teeth is important and easy—really!!! In order to be effective, our pets' teeth need to be brushed daily to every other day with a dog/cat toothpaste. Also, certain diets and snacks can help keep the mouth clean between cleanings.
Regular dental care helps to prevent tooth loss, and to prevent infection from spreading from the mouth to other parts of the body. February is pet dental month and many veterinary hospitals offer dental discounts around this time. Like people with healthy mouths, pets will live longer and feel better if their mouths are healthy.
