City by the Sea Veterinary Hospital offers the highest level of pet dental health care for your dog and cat in Asbury Park, NJ. Dog dental health care is important to help prevent gum disease that can lead to even bigger problems. Like humans, pets form plaque and bacteria on their teeth. The main difference is that gum disease is five times more common in dogs than in people. If the build-up isn’t removed, the plaque will create tartar. Tartar irritates your pet’s gums, causing redness, inflammation, and gingivitis. Plaque and tartar can even lead to pets losing their teeth. Dental care is essential for taking care of this problem before it becomes a bigger issue. We can help your dog or cat get the best possible dental care.
Dental or periodontal disease in dogs and cats affects their gums, teeth, and support structure in their mouth. A small plaque build-up on teeth filled with bacteria and tiny food particles can lead to big problems. Pet dental disease occurs when plaque and tartar remain on the tooth’s surface. When tartar is above the gum line, it is easily removed. When it falls below the gumline, the tartar becomes a tough problem to fight. Inflammation damages the teeth, causing infection. Many times, when the dental disease reaches this stage, dogs and cats experience severe dental issues.
