Having your pet’s teeth cleaned by your veterinarian will restore dental health by removing all plaque and tartar, sub-gingival flushing and addressing any disorders of the teeth and oral cavity. Contrary to popular belief, dogs and cats often continue to eat and act normal, even in the face of the most advanced stages of periodontal disease. The owners usually see a positive benefit in their pet after a dental cleaning/prophy by noticing a better appetite, more interest in playing with toys, more active, etc.
