Pet dentistry is an extremely important part of a pet’s overall health. After all, an unhealthy mouth could lead to even greater health problems! When tartar and plaque buildup on the surfaces of teeth, the toxins they contain can seep under the gum line and into the blood stream, affecting the organs that filter the blood including the heart, liver, and kidneys. It’s important to keep the mouth clean in order to prevent unnecessary infections in the body!
The images on this page are designed to demonstrate the different levels of oral buildup a pet may experience, and what those different levels can mean to their health. We examine teeth during all physical exams and may prescribe a professional dental if it is warranted.
At Kindness Animal Hospital, we provide complete dental services and professional cleaning and polishing, including tooth extractions, if needed, for Ft. Myers and Cape Coral pets. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
