Benefits of Pet Dental Cleaning
If your dog or cat allows you to look at their teeth, you’ll probably notice yellow plaque and tartar buildup. It’s most often found on the rear teeth, where they do most of their chewing. However, that might not show you the whole story. Plaque and tarter extend up above or below the gum line, where you can’t see it. A professional clean by a trained dentist ensures that your pet’s mouth is cleaned thoroughly. Other benefits of having your dog or cat’s teeth cleaned include:
- It prevents tooth loss
- It minimizes bad breath
- Pets will experience less oral pain
- The bacteria in plaque won’t enter the bloodstream and cause organ damage when it is removed

However, some other steps can help with healthy teeth and gums that are a little more manageable for pet owners. The simple act of chewing is actually good for dogs and cats.
