Anesthetic dental cleanings are important for your dog or cat if they have signs of dental disease. Common symptoms of dental disease can include bad breath, red gums, tartar, missing teeth, reluctance to eat or drink, excessive drooling, changes in tooth coloration and sensitivity around the mouth. Dental disease is the result of bacterial infections in your pet’s mouth that can also travel throughout the body causing more problems.
At Chino Hills Animal Hospital, our veterinarians will recommend an anesthetic dental to not only keep your pet safe during the procedure but to perform a thorough and effective dental procedure. Using anesthesia, your pet’s dental disease can either be maintained or severely minimized. This allows your pet’s daily oral health care at home to be easier and more successful at prolonging the worsening of dental diseases.
