Dental care is important for pets too!
Dental health has become a hot topic. Research has found connections between dental disease and heart, liver and kidney disease. It all begins with the cycle of dental plaque. Plaque builds up on the surface of the teeth and gums. Bacteria in plaque irritate gum tissue and can lead to infection and decay. If left to accumulate, calcium salts from saliva will deposit and help form calculus. Calculus is hard and rough, and will continue to accumulate. Typically calculus needs to be removed with a dental scaler. At Animal World we have a Dentalaire unit to clean and polish teeth. We also have a Corix X-ray unit to help further diagnose problems that are hidden under the gums.
