Benefits of Annual Oral Health Checkups

Our veterinarian in Montclair offers pet dentistry services for dogs and cats, which help keep your pet's breath smelling nice and reduce the risk of your pet developing certain oral diseases and infections.

Fewer Instances of Horrendous Dog and Cat Breath

When pets start to build-up excess tartar and plaque, it can lead to a bacteria explosion that can cause horrendous breath and oral infections. By getting your pet's teeth cleaned regularly, you are helping to reduce bad pet breath and lowering your pet's risk for developing gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Prevents Long Term Health Problems

Infections in the mouth can lead to dangerous body-wide infections in your pet. When plaque and tartar build up, they can lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease. These are very serious. Periodontal disease causes the gums to recede and pockets to form between the teeth and gum tissue. Those pockets provide habitats to bacteria to grow, which causes infection in the gum tissue that can lead to loose teeth and bone loss. If the infection is not treated, it can move into your pet's blood stream, which can negatively affect your pet's internal organs.

Saves Money in the Long Term

Getting your pet regular oral health care with our veterinarian can save you money in the long term by preventing the need to treat sudden, serious infections and have decayed teeth pulled.
