Oral hygiene is incredibly vital to preserving your pet’s health and wellbeing. Since our pets don’t have access to the same dental products as us, it’s the owner’s responsibility to monitor the foods your pet eats and to clear their mouth of any buildup. This can usually be done naturally with the right treats and annual cleaning treatments, but helps to ensure that your pet’s mouth is remains odorless, cavity free, and overall healthy.
Pet teeth brushing should usually only be performed once a year. If you struggle to get your pet to pose for a photo, you may have difficulty getting them to sit still long enough to brush their teeth. Luckily, we’ve been helping clients and their pets achieve a clean smile for many years. We use vet-approved dental products for both cats and dogs that help to clear their mouth of food buildup, debris, and much more. Human toothpastes and mouthwashes should never be used on pets at home, as their tolerance to these substances is likely not the same as ours, so if you’re unsure how to brush your pet’s teeth, leave the cleaning up to a professional!
Plaque and Tartar Removal
Similar to humans, pets are also prone to plaque and tartar buildup on the surface of their teeth from the gums downward. As most pet food and treats are of a dry and rough texture, these help to naturally cleanse the mouth and remove any bacteria that could potentially lead to Gingivitis. Therefore, you should consult with your vet on the best practices to maintain your pet’s oral hygiene according to their diet. From us, we can help with existing plaque and tartar removal, which brushes away the buildup on the teeth’s surface, leaving them sparkling clean and debris-free.
Oral Cleanse Wash
Our pets spend a lot more time with their mouths closed, grooming themselves, and eating different foods, so it’s likely their breath may start to hum after a while. To combat this, oral mouth cleansing washes are available. Similar to the kind we use, our mouth wash is pet-friendly and designed with a number of strong ingredients that targets the source of bad breath and odor. The mouth wash is also used to clean any debris and bacteria left on the gums, cheeks, tongue, and roof of mouth.
Gingivitis is a common problem amongst pet owners. Gingivitis is the cause of excessive buildup on the teeth often resulting bacteria accumulating into the gums. This buildup into the gums can cause your pet’s gums to become swollen, discolored, and painful. Also known as gum disease, Gingivitis can cause your pet’s teeth to turn a yellow or orange color and pungent breath. However, if your pet is kept on a vet-recommended diet and maintains a schedule of annual teeth cleanings and custom styling, Gingivitis can easily be avoided. All of our oral hygiene services are designed to help prevent Gingivitis and keep your pet’s mouth healthy.
