LOOK UNDER THE GUM

RECENT RESEARCH FROM THE ROYAL VETERINARY COLLEGE

To keep your pet in tip top health, dental care is an essential aspect of their health, which can easily be overlooked.

Even if you can see the teeth at the front and sides of their mouth, there will probably be teeth at the back (molars) that you cant. Also, what's concealed by the gum and on the inside of the teeth is much harder to see. 

If you would like your pet to have a dental exam by one of our experienced vets, contact CareVets.

This quote is from recent research from the Royal Veterinary College: 

"Dental disease is one of the most common health problems experienced by dogs but often remains unrecognised by owners as a major welfare issue. The latest research from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) reveals just how common dental disease is in dogs"

A FINAL POINT ABOUT DESCALING.....

Did you know......

Many dental problems are hidden below the gum and can only be detected when your pet is asleep. 

Dogs and cats are designed to hide pain and discomfort and they may be concealing more they're telling you. 

FACT:

Small dogs, cats and brachycephalic (short nosed) dogs tend to develop more issues as their teeth are more overcrowded. 

Older animals often need dental work, the age of your pet shouldn't let you be put off seeking help. 

We are often asked why other people offering scaling are cheap. 

Dental scaling is only one part of a comprehensive dental procedure. 

and consequently if performed alone, it only deals with part of the problem. During a dental procedure carried out by a qualified professional, each tooth is assessed for issues above and below the gum, the ligament holding the tooth in the gum is checked around each tooth separately, dental radiography may be necessary, nerves can be blocked to reduce pain, careful extraction is performed where necessary - there are several methods only a qualified professional can choose from, and pain relief is given as standard - during and after the dental.
