Temple Heights Animal Hospital performs many standard pet dentistry services, from simple cleanings to oral surgery. Pets can have dental disease just like humans. Naturally, we highly recommend preventive care. If left untreated, plaque and tartar buildup can lead to tooth loss and cause other infections throughout the body. Your pet's teeth and gums should be checked at least twice a year by a veterinarian to check for early signs of dental disease and to keep your pet's mouth healthy.

Your pet's mouth should be checked sooner if you observe any of the following problems:

* Bad breath

* Broken or loose teeth 

* Extra teeth or retained baby teeth 

* Teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar\

* Abnormal chewing, drooling, or dropping food from the mouth 

* Bleeding from the mouth 

* Swelling in areas surrounding the mouth 

* Inflamed gums
