Dental Care for Pets in Rancho Cucamonga

You know that brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing after meals will keep your teeth healthy and bright. But did you know that your pet’s teeth need the same great care to keep them pain-free and fully functioning so your furry friend can live his best life? At Day Creek Animal Hospital, we offer comprehensive dental care to the pets in the Rancho Cucamonga area.

Why Is Dental Care Important for Animals?

When animals do not get adequate dental care, they suffer from many of the same painful conditions that their human owners do. Two of the most common pet dental problems are:

Periodontal Disease

Dental plaque is riddled with bacteria. When plaque builds up on the tooth’s surface and under the gum line, it causes inflammation of the gums (gingivitis). If it isn’t treated, the bacteria build-up and cause infections that result in bone loss (periodontitis). In advanced cases of periodontal disease, infections can enter the bloodstream, causing sepsis, organ failure, and even death.

Fractured Teeth

Pets often get overzealous when chewing toys, playing, and eating; which can lead to fractured or chipped teeth. When broken teeth go untreated, they can cause pain, difficulty eating, loss of the entire tooth, and dangerous bacterial infections.

The good news is that with regular cleanings and checkups, our veterinarian can provide dental care that will help to avoid periodontal disease and repair fractured teeth before they become dangerous to your pet’s health.
