Keep Your Pet’s Smile Sparkling

A healthy mouth is happy mouth. At Whippany Veterinary Hospital, we understand the importance of your pet’s oral health. Poor dental care can lead to tooth decay, gum infection, chronic pain and other serious health issues. But with some TLC and regular cleanings, your pet’s smile can shine bright. 

Our veterinarians examine your pet’s teeth, gums, and oral cavity in wellness exams. We also offer professional dental cleaning under anesthesia to remove plaque and tartar for cleaner, healthier teeth. Proper dental care is essential for your pet’s overall health and longevity. Dental disease starts when plaque builds up on teeth and hardens into tartar. This irritates the gums, leading to infection and tooth decay. Bacteria from infected gums can enter the bloodstream, potentially affecting the heart, liver and kidneys. Studies have shown a correlation between periodontal disease and organ damage in pets, which is why it’s so crucial to have dental cleanings and regular maintenance. 

By maintaining good oral hygiene at home and having regular professional cleanings, you can help prevent dental disease from negatively impacting your pet’s health and longevity.

Don’t let dental disease dampen your pet’s natural joy. Call Whippany Veterinary Hospital today at 973-386-1380 to schedule a dental exam. We’ll customize a plan to keep your companion smiling comfortably for years to come.
