If your dog or cat has funky breath, yellow teeth, or any signs of periodontal disease, then it’s time to think about dental prophylaxis cleaning for your pet.
Just like humans, our pets need a little help keeping their teeth clean and healthy at some point in their lifetime. Dental prophylaxis is a great way to not only clean the teeth and freshen the breath, it also provides an opportunity to evaluate the pet’s mouth and identify early signs of periodontal disease.
Accumulation of plaque and tartar on your dog or cat’s teeth occurs over time and is normal, especially with indoor pets that don’t have rough surfaces to rub their teeth against. Optimal dental health for your pet can be achieved with periodic exams and cleaning.
Our comprehensive dental prophylaxis appointments include:
- Physical and visual assessment
- Health history
- Extractions if needed
- Tartar removal
- Fluoride application
- Sealant application
- Dental health report and next steps
We also keep detailed records of all dental procedures provided, including exam findings, diagnostic test results, and recommendations for care.
Don’t let poor dental health impact your dog or cat’s quality of life. Contact the veterinary professionals at 4th Street Pet Hospital in St. Petersburg to schedule your pet’s dental prophylaxis appointment today!
