Protect Your Pet from Dental Disease

Dental, or periodontal disease, is considered the most common disease affecting cats and dogs. It’s easily overlooked by even the most attentive pet parents. At Century Animal Hospital, we’ll help you keep your pet’s teeth healthy for years to come.

Symptoms of dental disease include:

  • Unusually bad breath
  • Blood in your pet’s saliva or water dish
  • Difficulty eating
  • Excessive drooling
  • Loose or missing teeth

If your pet is exhibiting one of more of the above symptoms, don’t delay! Bring your pet in to see your Austin veterinarian so we can get your pet back on the track to good oral health.

The Progression of Periodontal Disease

Pets can contract periodontal disease from an excess accumulation of plaque on their teeth. Plaque in pets is the same as it is in humans; it’s a bacterial film that hardens on the teeth when it dies. Like in humans, regular brushing can dislodge plaque. However, many pets don’t have their teeth brushed regularly, which means it continues to accumulate, with layers and layers of dead plaque building up until it moves below the gum line.

In the early stages, regular brushing and other approved dental care treats can help slow the progression of the plaque accumulation, but only professional dental cleanings completely treat it. Once the plaque and tartar move below the gum line, it can cause infection, pain, and loose teeth. At this point, the dental cleanings we perform under anesthesia can properly remove plaque and restore your pet’s teeth.

Advanced Digital Radiology

At Century Animal Hospital, we are constantly equipped with the latest advancements in oral technology to ensure your pet receives the highest standard of veterinary dental care. As your trusted provider, we understand the importance of digital radiology in determining the status of both the oral and overall health in your pet.

That's why we use advanced dental radiographs; allowing us to see the full extent of any disease and efficiently diagnose areas even below the gum line, exposing fractures, cavities, tumors, and other common signs of decay that most traditional x-rays wouldn't catch.

The advantages of utilizing our advanced dental radiographs to examine your pet's teeth include:

  • Provides high-definition imaging of your pet's entire mouth
  • Detects issues of discolored teeth, fractures, swollen gums, etc
  • Easily shows which teeth or tooth need to be extracted

Thorough Dental Cleanings

As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited practice, Century Animal Hospital is fully equipped to properly monitor your pet under anesthesia while they undergo their dental cleaning. Your Austin veterinarian is highly trained in caring for your pet while they undergo any procedure requiring anesthesia. Your pet will always be safe with us!

We use tools similar to those used by human dentists to scale and polish your pet’s teeth. Once their teeth are clean and plaque-free, we’ll apply an anti-plaque treatment to help protect the teeth from future buildup.

After your pet comes out from under anesthesia, we’ll help you maintain their oral health care. Maintenance is keep to keeping your pet smiling for many years to come!
