The Importance of Pet Dental Care from Out Vets

When was the last time your pet saw our veterinarian in Knoxville TN for a dental exam or cleaning? If it's been more than a year or two since your pet's last dental care appointment, then your pet's dental and oral health could be at risk. It doesn't take long for plaque and tartar to build up along the surfaces of your pet's teeth, as well as under the gum line. Over time, this can lead to tooth decay and cause painful cavities or even dangerous tooth abscesses.

In some cases, plaque buildup below your pet's gum line can also lead to gum disease, which can be irreversible and lead to permanent tooth loss, bleeding gums, and other uncomfortable symptoms that can affect your pet's quality of life.

Fortunately, by just bringing your pet in for routine cleanings and exams, you can protect him or her from many of these common dental problems. With regular dental exams at our animal hospital in Knoxville, we can look for signs of underlying dental and oral health problems. And with routine appointments for pet dental in Knoxville, our experienced veterinary team can carefully remove plaque from your pet's teeth as well as under the gum line while keeping your pet as comfortable as possible throughout the appointment. This, in addition to practicing great dental health habits at home, can help to protect your pet's dental and oral health for years to come.
