We believe the mouth is the most interesting and important body part, so oral health maintenance and treatment of oral disease are our primary concerns at Yarmouth Veterinary Center. We are your pet's dentists.
Oral health maintenance is achieved in the same way that it is for people, with home care and professional care. Our pet's needs are the same as ours: daily home care and yearly (in some cases more frequent) cleaning and exam at their dentist's office.
Oral disease has the same consequences for our pet's as it does for us: pain, infection, and systemic effects. Unfortunately, most of us have experienced the pain of a dental problem. Dogs and cats experience this pain in the same way and to the same degree that we do. Plaque is composed largely of bacteria and the products of bacterial metabolism, so the presence of plaque = the presence of infection. Chronic oral infection has systemic effects: it has been implicated in health problems in virtually every other part of the body, including the kidneys (inflammation and infection), the heart (valvular heart disease) and the joints (arthritis).
By most estimates 80 to 90 percent of dogs and cats have oral disease. Yarmouth Veterinary Center can help your pet join the 10 to 20 percent that do not.
