Fremont’s Best Pet Dental Health Care
Did you know that you can a
dd two to four years to your pet’s life with proper dental care?
Dental hygiene for your pet is an important part of your pet’s health and can often be the cause of serious illness. If left untreated, pet dental problems can lead to larger systemic issues in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart and liver.
However, dental disease is often overlooked by many pet owners. Unfortunately, it is estimated that more than 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats develop tooth and gum disease by the age of three years.
Dental disease and its serious consequences can be avoided by bringing your pet to your Fremont pet dentist and veterinarian for regular dental check-ups and canine/feline teeth cleanings. This is why Ace Animal Hospital in Fremont uses modern and safe ultrasound equipment to clean each tooth thoroughly, above and below the gum line. Our pet dental technicians will also polish each tooth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface that is more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments will also help strengthen the enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.
To provide a further layer of protection, Ace Animal Hospital in Fremont also offers our veterinary clients computerized dental radiographs. These high-definition images provide a view below your pet’s gum line and jaw, in order to look for evidence of dental disease that cannot be seen by visual examination alone. This is a wonderful tool for enabling the treatment of dental issues before they become much larger and more expensive medical issues.
