Getting Your Dog's Teeth Cleaned in South San Francisco

If you’ve never taken your canine companion to a doggy dentist, he could be suffering from periodontal disease.

This disease affects millions of dogs (up to 80%!) -- and many pet parents don’t even know that their little companions are suffering. Having your dog’s teeth cleaned regularly prevents periodontal disease and protects his overall health. It also provides an opportunity for your veterinarian to detect any potential problems involving the teeth, gums, or the bones surrounding the teeth before they become severe. Thanks to experienced and compassionate veterinarians, getting your dog’s teeth cleaned in South San Francisco is easier than ever. Keep reading to learn more!



Why Getting Your Dog’s Teeth Cleaned Is Important

You probably see your dentist regularly to have your teeth cleaned, and if you have kids, you schedule appointments for them too. While many people don’t realize it, dental care is just as important for our canine companions. Plaque accumulates on their teeth just like it can on ours, and when it isn’t removed it can lead to a wide range of diseases. In addition to causing painful inflammation, plaque contains bacteria that can enter your dog’s bloodstream and attack the organs. When you make the time to have your dog’s teeth cleaned here in South San Francisco, your veterinarian will often be placing your pet under anesthesia. This allows the vet to carefully examine the teeth above and below the gumline and obtain clear x-rays. Using special tools, the vet will remove all plaque and tartar from your dog’s teeth. With your dog sedated, the entire process is quick and easy and provides numerous health benefits while avoiding potential pitfalls of an awake pup.


Finding the Right Veterinarian

Busy pet owners have a hard enough time getting to their own dental cleanings, let alone their pet’s. A great veterinarian can help make the process easier and more convenient without sacrificing quality of care. Simply having someone who understands your busy schedule and is willing to work with you to get your pet the care they need can make a huge difference in your pup’s life.
