Investing in your dog’s oral health is one of the best things you can do to keep your pet happy and healthy. After all, dogs experience much of the world and gain knowledge about it by chewing on things, especially when they are young. Keeping your pet’s smile pearly white on your own can be a challenge, and the bad breath associated with the plaque and bacteria that accumulate on their teeth is enough to make any dog owner start to avoid those precious puppy kisses.
Dog cosmetic teeth cleaning services are a way to help combat bad breath and the discoloration that comes with time and age, but there are plenty of rumors and myths about what this kind of service does and does not consist of. Below, we’ll outline what a dog cosmetic teeth cleaning service is and what it is not to help dispel some of the more common misconceptions.
A dog cosmetic teeth cleaning is:
- A non-medical process designed to remove plaque and tartar from the surface of a dog’s teeth and is only performed on areas above the gum line.
- Designed to improve the look of your dog’s teeth by removing plaque that can cause premature yellowing or discoloration of your dog’s teeth.
- Able to combat bad breath by removing foul-smelling bacteria and buildup from the surface of your dog’s teeth.
A dog cosmetic teeth cleaning is not:
- A medical procedure.
- Intended to diagnose medical issues. You should report any health concerns you have about your dog, including their oral health, to their regular vet.
- A process that involves cleaning anywhere below the gum line.
