Routine dental examinations can detect dental disease that not only affects the teeth and mouth, but can also lead to more serious health problems such as heart, lung, and kidney disease. Proper dental hygiene is just as important for pets as it is for humans. Yet, it is one of the most overlooked areas in pet health.
