Providing Animal Teeth Cleaning & Dentistry Services in Charlotte, NC
Does your best friend have bad breath? Despite what many pet owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance, it may be a sign of a serious problem. Bad breath is caused by bacteria. Over time, bacteria can lead to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. This can result in bad breath, infected gums, and even dental disease. As dental disease progresses, symptoms can include excessive drooling, discomfort while chewing, and loose or missing teeth. Even if you’re using treats and chews to help control tartar, these are frequently not enough to keep dental problems in check. Left untreated, dental disease can further lead to other serious problems such as heart and kidney disease.
In addition to ensuring your furry friend receives all their required pet vaccinations, at Archdale Animal Hospital, we encourage pet owners throughout Charlotte, NC to visit our animal clinic for regular teeth cleaning appointments. These routine cleanings allow our technicians to stay ahead of disease, detect early signs of trouble, and ensure that your pet's teeth remain in good health. As part of our veterinary services, our team will conduct a full examination of the mouth and teeth and can also provide teeth polishing to keep their teeth and gums healthy and looking great.
Should your pet require any additional care for damaged teeth or need to have a tooth extracted, our caring veterinarian will meet with you to discuss your options so you can make an informed decision. In addition to regular teeth cleaning services, our animal hospital also offers dental digital radiographs which allow us to detect problems hidden below the gum line and can give our staff a more complete view of your pet’s oral health.
