Did you know that 80 % of dogs over the age of three have peridontal disease? Apart from causing your dog considerable pain, untreated dental problems can lead to serious health conditions. Bacteria from the mouth can cause heart and liver disease as well as a wide range of other physical health problems. Vets recommend that owners brush their dog's teeth at home on a regular basis but if you can't (or don't want to) brush your dog's teeth at home you might think there's no effective way to keep them clean and healthy except waiting for them to get bad enough to need an expensive full dental under anaesthesia at the vet.
Millions of microscopic, non-invasive bubbles clean under the gum line, breakdown plaque and tartar and help prevent it forming again. The ultrasound bubbles reduce gingivitis, periodontist, receding gums and bad breath.
Dogs with mild to moderate tartar build up and signs of gum disease (like the dogs in the pictures on the left) will benefit enormously, from a course of ultrasound teeth cleaning and then can move on to a monthly maintenance programme.
Many dogs end up having expensive dental treatment under anaesthetic every year! If your dog's teeth are currently clean following a recent dental treatment under anaesthetic, a monthly ultrasound treatment will help prevent the need for it again.
Owing to advanced age or health problems some dogs can't have anaesthetic for teeth cleaning and for these dogs ultrasound teeth cleaning may be the ideal solution.
Ultrasound teeth cleaning is not suitable for dogs with advanced peridontal disease. However, once your vet has carried out the required treatment a monthly ultrasound teeth cleaning treatment can help prevent further necessity for treatment under anaesthetic in the future.
