Did you know that cats and dogs don’t get cavities like we do?
This makes diagnosing severe dental disease, including abscessed and infected teeth, nearly impossible to diagnose without dental x-rays. Eagle’s Landing Veterinary Hospital is proud to have one of the only dental x-ray machines in the metro Atlanta area. Our technicians are trained and highly skilled in performing dental radiology and troubleshooting dental disease.
Untreated dental disease can cause serious illnesses including heart disease, kidney failure and liver disease. Dental disease can be extremely painful for your pet and often results in broken jaw bones, open sores in the mouth and oral nasal fistulas, which are holes from the mouth into the nasal cavity caused by a tooth root abscess that erupts into the nasal area.
Periodic dental exams help maintain proper oral hygiene and prevent future problems. Has it been more than a year since your pet’s pearly whites got some attention? Give us a call today at 770-954-1414 to schedule a dental cleaning. You can also book a visit online.
