FAQ About Pet Dental Care
We receive a number of questions about pet dental care on a regular basis, so for your convenience, we have compiled some of the most common questions about pet dental care to answer below.
Why is Pet Dental Care so Important?
Many pet owners never realize that their pets require special dental care. In reality, a pet's oral and dental health is just as important as any other aspect of his or her health, and the two can be closely related. Just as with humans, plaque and tartar can build up on the teeth and even below the gum line over time. When this occurs, your pet could suffer from tooth decay and other painful dental problems. Unfortunately, pets have no easy way of voicing dental pain. With routine dental cleanings and check-ups, however, a lot of common pet dental issues can be easily avoided.

We're happy to offer a wide range of pet dental services here in our office.
