Bad Teeth Are Painful
When I was a kid, my family had a little dog named Polly. Her breath was stinky and her teeth were a little brown, but we never thought about it much. Dogs have doggy breath, right?
Now that I’m a veterinarian, I wonder about how much discomfort Polly was in. Along with smelly breath and ugly teeth, dental disease causes pain. This is because teeth have sensitive nerves that become painful when irritated. Just ask anybody who’s ever had a toothache.
Clean Teeth, Find and Fix Problems
Annual dental cleanings do more than clean teeth. With x-rays, problems like infected or cracked roots can be discovered, which aren’t visible to the naked eye. Damaged teeth may need to be extracted.
Save the Teeth if Possible
Dental cleanings help reduce plaque and bacteria in the mouth, which cause loose and painful teeth. Regular dental cleanings can greatly reduce the need for dental extractions.
No Teeth? Better than Painful Teeth
While humans like to have all their teeth for a nice white smile, we are most concerned with eliminating painful dental problems in dogs and cats. Extracting bad teeth is the best way to do this. Pets have no problems eating without teeth!
