An oral dental evaluation can be done with and without anesthesia. First, we perform a regular exam without anesthesia to look for obvious dental problems. In an oral dental exam performed under general anesthesia, we use radiographs to find problems below the gum line. We identify broken teeth or roots, dead teeth, periodontal disease, and infected teeth. We have a veterinary anesthesiologist to oversee all the procedures. You can take your pet to a routine dental checkup or when you notice any sign of pain or changes in eating behavior.
This is one of the most common in pets. A lot of pet owners assume that bad breath is common for pets. In most cases, bacteria can be the cause of bad breath. But, bad breath in pets can also be a sign of liver or kidney problems. Pet’s mouths are similar to ours in terms of dental health and should be properly taken care of.
Swollen, red, or bleeding gums are obvious signs of oral problems, and early signs of oral disease you need to take appropriate actions for.
If your pet shows any signs of discomfort while chewing, shows any reluctance to eat, swallow food as a whole, then take them for a check-up.
Drooling can be caused by excessive tartar build-up. Take your pet to the vet and get a check-up in case of excessive drooling.
If your pet is losing teeth, it can be a sign of severe periodontal disease. If the color of the teeth has changed, it might be due to an injury or abnormal formation of the tooth.
Swelling can be a sign of inflammation and infection in the mouth. Inflammation is the early sign of oral diseases.
