The nasty bacteria in the mouth can even lead to disease elsewhere in the body, like the heart. Some cats are especially prone to cavities and gingivitis and require dentals more regularly than most.
Drooling, smelly breath and chattering teeth are some of the signs that your pet may need a dental.
Once plaque and tartar build up we will clean the teeth, ideally before decay takes place. We use the same ultrasonic de-scaler and polisher as the human dentist uses. However our patients will have a short general anaesthetic while getting their teeth cleaned.
