Pet Dental Care
Have you checked your pets teeth recently? Do they look yellow or brownish? Does the breath smell?
Dental issues such as build up of tartar and resulting gingivitis (gum infection) are not just a cosmetic problem! The smelly breath often comes for large numbers of bacteria living in your pets mouth, and as the infection works its way deeper into the gum, those bacteria can enter the blood stream and cause general infection, affect organs like kidneys and even cause severe heart problems!
Furthermore, the infection can weaken the bones of the jaws to the point of sudden fractures. So aside form being painful and disgusting, bad teeth are – like in humans - a severe general health risk!
The best way to maintain good oral hygiene in your pet is – as in people – the daily cleaning with toothbrush and doggy toothpaste. However, if things have already progressed too far, the toothbrush will have little success.
At Blue Oasis we have modern dental equipment to give your pets teeth a thorough cleaning with the ultrasound scaler and polisher.
In order to reach deep under the gumline and get between the teeth, your pet will have to be under full anaesthesia for the procedure. However, being under anaesthesia ensures that the treatment is pain free for the patient, while it allows us to perform a thorough check of the teeth and gums, find any problems zones and, if necessary, perform tooth extractions if the defects are too far gone for cure.
