As a dentist, I see the impact of poor dental health every day in my practice. That’s why I was surprised when I recently learned that even our furry friends can suffer from dental problems. My three-year-old dog, Mazie, was diagnosed with periodontal disease after a routine checkup at the vet.
Despite the diagnosis, Mazie underwent a tooth extraction procedure and came through it like a pro. She’s now down 10 teeth, but still has 32 pearly whites and is doing great. This experience was a stark reminder of the importance of taking care of our dental health, even for our four-legged friends.
Regular dental checkups are crucial in detecting and preventing problems before they become serious. During these checkups, your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of trouble. They will also clean your teeth to remove any plaque or tartar that has built up. By doing this, they can catch any issues early and treat them before they become bigger problems.
The experience of our family dog Mazie reminded me of the importance of taking care of our dental health. Regular dental checkups are crucial in detecting and preventing problems before they become serious. So, take care of your teeth and gums, and don’t forget about your furry friends too. They deserve a healthy smile just as much as we do!
