Dental disease is one of the most common conditions found in pets.

In fact, as many as 80% of cats and dogs age 3 or over suffer silently from some form of periodontal problem. Pets are excellent at hiding pain and illness, and many of our furry loved ones endure dental discomfort without complaining.

To help prevent dental disease from causing your beloved companion unnecessary pain, we are well-equipped to handle many periodontal issues. If your furry friend is suffering from a toothache in the Atascocita, Humble, or Porter areas, trust in the team at Kings Crossing Animal Hospital to alleviate their pain.

Signs of Dental Disease

Many periodontal problems lurk out of sight below your pet’s gum line, since as much as 60% of each tooth can lie hidden.

However, with our digital dental X-ray equipment, we can take a detailed look at potential issues that we otherwise would be unable to detect. On X-rays, we can pick up on jaw bone loss, tooth root abscesses, fractured teeth, dental decay, and much more.

During your pet’s oral exam, we look carefully for signs of dental disease, which may include the following:

Red inflamed gums

Bleeding gums

Gingival overgrowth or recession

Brown or yellow tartar accumulation on the teeth

Chatter response to pain

At home, you may have noticed additional signs of discomfort, such as your pet pawing at their face, dropping food while eating, or avoiding hard food. If your pet is exhibiting any of these signs, make sure to give us a call to avoid any further issues.
