Keeping your pet's teeth and mouth healthy can help keep your pet healthier overall. By bringing your pet in for regular dental exams and cleanings and performing recommended at-home care, you can help prevent painful periodontal disease in your pet. In addition, regular dental exams may allow us to catch and treat other potential problems.
What to Expect During Your Pet's Dental Exam
A dental examination typically begins with a medical history. Let us know if you've noticed any issues that you're concerned about, such as:
- Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
We'll be sure to take a close look.
During the visit, your veterinarian will:
- Examine your pet's head and neck, checking for pain, enlarged lymph nodes, lumps or swelling
- Check your pet's gums for any bleeding, inflammation, or redness
- Examine your pet's teeth for staining, tartar and any damage
- Look for lumps or growths inside your pet's mouth
