DENTAL CARE FOR PETS IN CULVER CITY AND
GREATER LOS ANGELES

At Culver City Animal Hospital, we believe that dental care is a vital component of your pet’s overall health. Dental disorders in pets can lead to a range of other more serious systemic health problems.

Regular dental examinations and cleanings not only maintain the whiteness of your pet’s teeth but also serve as a preventative measure against oral diseases such as periodontal disease, a common ailment in pets which can lead to tooth loss and other severe complications.

Our specialized team of veterinarians are thoroughly trained in pet dentistry and are dedicated to providing the highest level of care to your furry friends.

Dental Care at Home

Caring for your pet’s teeth at home is a significant part of ensuring their dental hygiene. Regular brushing with a toothbrush designed for pets and pet-appropriate toothpaste helps in maintaining the health of your pet’s teeth and gums.

We recommend using flavored toothpaste specially designed for pets to make the brushing experience more enjoyable for them. For example, our online store has toothpaste flavors such as chicken, beef, or seafood! These toothpastes are safe for your pet, whereas human toothpaste can be hazardous to your pet’s health.

Incorporating dental treats into your pet’s diet is another efficient way to promote oral health. Dental treats are not only a tasty reward for your pet but also help fight plaque and tartar build-up. You can find a variety of dental treats that cater to different breeds and sizes in our online store.

Remember, home dental care for pets should complement, not replace, professional dental cleanings. Always consult with your us to understand the best at-home dental care practices for your pet.

Professional Veterinary Dental Cleanings

Professional veterinary dental cleanings are an essential part of maintaining your pet’s oral health. Our experienced veterinarians use specialized tools to clean not only the visible parts of your pet’s teeth but also the areas below the gumline that are not accessible with routine at-home brushing. This is crucial because plaque and tartar often accumulate in these hidden areas, leading to periodontal disease if left untreated. During these professional cleanings, our vets can identify early signs of dental problems before they become severe.

By having a professional cleaning on a routine basis, your pet’s mouth will be at its most healthy state, and potential issues are addressed promptly, keeping your pet pain-free and happy.

Dangers of Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is not just debilitating for your pet’s oral health, but it can also lead to more severe health issues if not treated promptly. When a pet suffers from periodontal disease, bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream, leading to potential infections or damage to vital organs.

Here are key dangers associated with periodontal disease in pets:

  • Heart Disease: The bacteria can damage the heart’s valves, leading to heart disease.
  • Tooth Loss: Bacteria can destroy the bones and tissues that keep teeth in place. This can eventually lead to tooth loss.
  • Infections: The spread of bacteria from periodontal disease can lead to infections in other organs such as the kidneys or liver.
  • Decreased Appetite and Weight Loss: Pain and discomfort from oral disease can affect a pet’s ability to eat, resulting in decreased appetite and weight loss.

To avoid these risks, it’s crucial to maintain your pet’s dental hygiene with regular at-home care and professional cleanings.
