Why Dental Hygiene Is Important for Pets

Our pets are like members of our family. Because we love them, we bring them in for their yearly wellness exams and keep their vaccinations up to date. Much like humans, regular dental care is essential for the continued health and well-being of your pet. If your pet’s teeth are not cared for, it can lead to serious health issues. At Chandler Gilbert Animal Hospital in Chandler AZ, we offer a full range of veterinary services including pet dental care.

Pets can suffer from the same types of dental issues as humans, including staining, cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. Imagine eating every day and never brushing your teeth. While few people can imagine doing this, it is the reality for most pets.

Dental health is important to your pet's overall health. If teeth become broken, they can become infected, leading to many serious issues. Broken teeth can also expose nerves, which can make eating playing, and interacting with the world painful. If your pets’ teeth are broken or damaged, it significantly reduces their quality of life.

Gingivitis and periodontal disease are caused by a build-up of bacteria in your pet's mouth. This leads to tartar, infection, and eventually tooth loss. Beyond tooth loss, periodontal disease can cause serious damage to your pet's heart, kidneys, and liver. Gum disease is much more common in pets than people because they aren't brushing their teeth twice a day.
