Creekside Animal Hospital of Cumming, Georgia, provides complete veterinary dental care for dogs and cats. Keeping your pet’s mouth clean and healthy is about more than bright, shiny teeth and fresh breath. Periodontal disease is one of the most common — and most preventable — diseases among pets. Bacteria from plaque and tartar on your pet’s teeth can enter the bloodstream, leading to problems with the heart, kidneys and other organs. Routine teeth cleanings can prevent these problems from occurring and can have a positive effect on your pet’s overall health.
