We love our pets, and we want them to be happy and healthy. When their teeth start to get dirty or become damaged, it can be hard for them to eat and live; it is our job as pet owners to make sure their teeth stay clean and healthy. For those looking for teeth cleaning for dogs in Riverview, FL, Pavilion Crossing Animal Hospital & Grooming can help you get your dog’s teeth in great shape.
Why are Dog Dental Cleanings Important?
- Keeps teeth healthy.
- Prevent tooth loss.
- Prevent swelling in gums.
- Improve overall health and ability to eat foods.
We all know that swollen gums can hurt them, making it hard for them to eat, and it can cause damage to the teeth. When your pet has teeth covered in plaque and tartar, it can cause swelling in the gums, which can cause damage to the root and can cause decay below the gum line. Routine cleaning can help keep your pet from getting swollen gums, it can help prevent damage below the gum line, and it can help your pet have strong and clean teeth.
Cleaning your dog’s teeth routinely can also help to prevent tooth loss and decay. When a pet loses a tooth, it often makes it harder for your pet to eat, making it more likely that they will have to deal with infection, and you may have a pet that does end up having to deal with pain in the mouth. When a pet is in pain, they can be more aggressive, they can be moody and testy, and it can make it very hard for them to be comfortable and be happy.
Routine cleaning also helps ensure that if there are problems like broken teeth, infection below the gums, and more are caught and taken care of before teeth need removal. Routine cleaning also makes each cleaning after that more straightforward and less complicated for your pet. Your pet should be having their teeth cleaned at least once a year, twice if possible, and they should also have their teeth brushed at home if you can manage it.
We want our pets to be as happy and healthy as possible, and with the proper dental care, your pet can keep their teeth longer. For those in the Riverview FL area, the Pavilion Crossing Animal Hospital & Grooming team can help. Call (813) 670-8881 and make an appointment today.
