Why dental care is

important

Regular dental care is just as important for your animals as it is for you! Routine dental prophylaxis (or cleaning) helps prevent dental disease in pets, just as it does in humans, by removing the plaque that harbors bacteria from the mouth. Gingivitis, or gum disease, not only causes discomfort in the mouth, bacteria from the gum infection can travel through the bloodstream and damage other organs. In many cases, owners are not aware when a pethas gum disease or other oral problems. Routine dental care - cleaning your pet's teeth and performing a dental exam – helps us correct any dental problems before they have a negative effect on your pet's health. Dr. Kimberlin prepares to work on a horse's teeth Horses have teeth that continue to erupt into the mouth and wear down until the tooth wears out (20-30 years). This continual eruption causes sharp points to form and other malocclusions. Regular dental care removes irritating points and malocclusions, safeguarding your horse's health and overall performance. It's also cost effective - a horse with a healthy mouth will feel better and perform better.
