Do not forget that your furry four legged members of your family need to brush their teeth too! That’s right! Your pets need their teeth taken care of too!

While their teeth don’t require quite as much attention as ours do, your pet’s teeth still need a little tender loving care to keep them healthy.

Open Wide To Get Rid of That Doggy Breath!

Brushing your dog or cat’s teeth three to four times per week can prevent dental disease and extend their life.  It can also save them a lot of pain and you a lot of money on veterinary visits!

Which Toothpaste Should I Use?

It’s important not to use regular human toothpaste for your pet.  Since dogs and cats can’t spit the toothpaste out, the high fluoride content can really upset their stomachs and can even be toxic.  You can find toothpaste specifically made for pets that’s not only safe, but appeals to their taste buds too!

Great Chew Toys Help Remove Plaque

Just as chewing sugarless gum after you eat helps increase saliva production and remove plaque, chew toys contribute to your pet’s dental health in between brushing sessions.  Getting your pet a chew toy or hard bone can strengthen their teeth and gums as well as scrub plaque off of their teeth!

Don’t Forget Their Regular Checkups!

Biannual or annual visits to your veterinarian help keep your pet’s mouth and body healthy. When you and your family come in for your biannual visit , we not only clean your teeth, but check for signs of more serious conditions such as periodontal disease and oral cancer.  Plan routine dental checkups for your pets as their dental health is just as essential for their over all health.

A Healthy Mouth Makes A Healthy Pet

Sadly, statistics suggest that over 80 percent of dogs and cats have some degree of dental disease by the time they are three years old. Remember, a healthy mouth means a happy life.

We Love Our Patients (And Their Pets)!

At Grove Smiles Dentistry we love your whole family and would like to ensure that every member has the happiest and healthiest smiles possible for life.  Although we only provide dental treatments for the human species, please make sure to schedule dental checkups for your entire family.

We look forward to seeing you very soon!
