Just like our own dental health, dental care for your pet is an important piece of its overall wellness. Dental problems can also happen quickly. Sunshine Animal Hospital provides both routine annual dental care as well as urgent care for problems such as chipped teeth. Daily maintenance of your pet’s oral health is likely not up to the standards of your own oral health. Therefore, an annual dental cleaning is a significant benefit for their well being and long-term oral health. Preventative dental care is similar to human dental exams. For example, it includes charting, cleaning, polishing, examination of teeth and other oral structures, dental x-rays, and extractions. Not only will an annual dental cleaning help combat the dreaded bad breath of your beloved pet, but it also identifies underlying problems that may be present.
