Veterinarian and pet owner brushing dogs teethIssues That a Pet Dental Exam Can Catch 

There are many issues that a high-quality pet dental exam can catch. Just a few of these common pet dental issues include:

  • Broken teeth 
  • Shattered roots 
  • Serious periodontal disease 
  • Abscessed teeth 
  • Infections on the gums 
  • Cysts or tumors 
  • Misalignment in their bite 
  • Broken jaws 
  • Defects in the palate 

Each of these issues can cause a variety of severe health problems that can make your pet's life miserable. Understanding these problems is critical to know when deciding if it is time to contact a vet for treatment. 

Pet Dental Problems

The issues mentioned above are just a start to the dental health issues that can plague your pet. When these issues are left to linger without treatment, they will get worse and your pet will suffer. In some instances, they may need to lose most, if not all, of their teeth in order to avoid more serious concerns. Just a few of these issues include:

  • Gingivitis
  • Discolored and rotting teeth
  • Persistent primary teeth
  • Stomatitis
  • Tooth resorption
  • Cavities
  • Tooth Resorption
  • Abnormal Bite

The problem with many of these issues is that your pet cannot vocalize the pain that they are causing. While they may whine or hiss if the pain gets too severe, most will just deal with it. As a result, it is important to take them to a vet regularly to get these problems checked.
