Tooth Cleanings for Dogs: Tartar Removal and Gingivitis Treatment
Our canine patients are particularly prone to develop dental disease. Most dogs develop a significant accumulation of tartar and begin to develop gingivitis by the age of three. With regular cleanings by our canine dentist to remove accumulated debris and bacterial colonies, many health problems related to gingival disease can be avoided. Some breeds are more prone to dental health issues, as are those with certain pre-existing health conditions. Untreated gingivitis is known to contribute to serious health complications, including kidney and heart disease. Bring your dog in for regular cleanings to help avoid serious, painful medical issues in the future.
