Periodontal Therapy & Surgery

Treatments for periodontal disease in pets are varied and depends upon the severity of your pet’s problem. The cornerstone of treatment for periodontal disease is the professional dental cleaning. A Professional Dental Cleaning is also known as dental prophylaxis (or “Prophy” for short). By definition a dental prophylaxis is the use of appropriate procedures and/or techniques to prevent dental and oral disease; in this case any cleaning, scaling, and polishing of teeth designed to prevent gum disease. Prophy therapy is to control plaque which can lead to subgingival infection which, if left untreated, can make your pet very sick. Bacteria will enter the bloodstream and may subsequently damage the kidneys and/or heart leading to potential organ failure. Caring for your pet’s teeth and gums is vital to the health of your pet to remove the plaque and tarter that accumulates each day.   Please give us a call today to schedule your pet’s periodontal therapy surgery.
