Cat Dental Care
Can you imagine what your teeth would look like if you never brushed them? It’s no different for cats, though many pet owners don’t pay much attention to their pet’s dental health. Bad breath and dirty teeth are unappealing, but many pet owners aren’t aware that these may be indicators of gum disease that can spread to the kidney, heart, and liver. The gums are a boundary to the bloodstream, so unless you regularly provide dental care for your pet, you neglect an essential factor in their overall health and put them at a higher risk for serious illness.
Without proper care, plaque builds up on the teeth and turns into tartar. These areas spread as long as they are untreated, resulting in gum disease, tooth loss, and pain.
The best thing you can do to prevent dental disease is to call Morrisville Cat Hospital to schedule an appointment for your pet. You have to do your part at home with brushing and special dental chews, but your veterinarian also plays a vital role in your pet’s dental health. Annual dental exams are a necessary part of your pet’s overall health, so call us at (919)-678-1554 or come by in person to talk about your pet’s dental health today.
With digital dental radiography, we can visualize the internal anatomy of your cat’s teeth, roots, and surrounding bone. Even thorough oral examinations can miss what’s hiding below the gumline. Digital dental radiography allows us to see potential bone loss or dental disease present at the tooth roots and jawbone areas.
