Pet Dental Care Orange County
Dental disease in cats and dogs is common – and dangerous. If left untreated, it can lead to heart disease, kidney failure and other serious health problems. By bringing your pet to the Affordable Animal Hospital Orange for routine exams and deep cleanings, we can restore his optimal dental (and overall) health.
Signs of Periodontal Disease and Dental Problems
If you want to preserve your pet’s oral health, you need to keep an eye out for problems at home. We recommend routinely looking for signs of dental disease, such as:
- Bad breath
- Swollen gums
- Yellow or brown teeth
- Difficulty chewing
If you notice any of these signs, you’ll want to get your pet to the Affordable Animal Hospital Orange as quickly as possible so our veterinarians can treat the dental disease before it leads to bigger health problems.
Optimal Dental Care for Your Pet
We see it all the time. One day your pet’s teeth are in great shape – and the next they’re yellow and decaying. Periodontal disease emerges quickly, so don’t fall behind on your pet’s cleanings and exams. To ensure your animal companion is receiving optimal dental care, it’s important to provide:
- Comprehensive dental exams twice a year
- Deep dental cleanings once a year
- Regular home dental care and brushings
What to Expect During Your Pet’s Dental Exams & Cleanings
When you arrive at our office for a dental exam and cleaning, our vet will begin with a basic assessment of your dog or cat’s mouth to determine the general condition. From there, we’ll administer anesthesia to sedate your pet and keep him comfortable throughout the procedure.
Once your pet is sedated, our vet will perform:
- A comprehensive oral exam
- X-rays to look for periodontal disease, broken teeth and infection
- Deep cleaning beneath the gum line to combat periodontal disease
- Professional scaling and polishing of your pet’s teeth to remove plaque and tartar
