  1. Taking care of your pet’s oral health is an important part of their overall well-being. A healthy mouth, promotes a healthy body! Just like humans, pets can suffer from a variety of dental issues, including plaque, tartar, and periodontal disease, if their oral health isn’t properly maintained.

    First, let’s talk about why pet oral health is so important. Not only can poor oral health lead to bad breath, but it can also create a number of other problems for your pet. For instance, bacteria can easily enter the bloodstream through the gums and cause infections in other organs. This can lead to a variety of illnesses and can even be life-threatening. That’s why it’s so important to practice good oral hygiene for your pet.

    Let’s talk about how to keep your pet’s mouth clean and healthy. One of the best ways to do this is by brushing your pet’s teeth regularly. You can purchase special pet toothbrushes and toothpaste at most pet stores. It’s also important to feed your pet a healthy, balanced diet and give them plenty of chew toys. This will help remove plaque and prevent tartar buildup.

    Finally, it’s also important to take your pet to the vet for regular checkups. While Frankel Dentistry does not care for animals, your vet can check your pet’s teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy and can provide advice on the best way to maintain your pet’s oral hygiene! Let’s help your best friend have a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles!

    We’ve said it time and time again but a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body! The same goes for the pets you love! Good oral hygiene is an important part of your pet’s overall health and well-being.

    Okay, unless you have never needed one, you might not be excited. Sometimes a tooth needs a root canal and you would never know it. But, if you have ever had severe dental pain alleviated by a root canal, you are ready to celebrate all week long.

    Root Canal Awareness Week 
    Do you need one? Find out! 
    A root canal is a dental treatment used to repair and save a tooth that may be infected or decayed. Your teeth are composed of many layers including an outer layer of enamel, a second layer called dentin and the inner layer called the pulp. In the pulp layer of your tooth, there are nerves that run through a canal and into the root tip.
     Root Canal Dental Surgery
    A deep cavity or tooth fracture may cause a bacterial infection in the canal which can create a lot of pressure and discomfort. An x-ray of the tooth will allow for the dentist to see if there is an infection.
    Is the treatment of a root canal really painful? Patients have reported the procedure is no more painful than having a filling done. Generally, the entire procedure can be completed in just one visit. The dentist will simply clean out the infected canal and fill it with a biologically inert substance. The canal will be sealed and your tooth ready to go!
    To help prevent future infections, it’s important to maintain good oral health and regular dental visits to help identify and prevent any future issues.
