Dogs require proper dental extractions. Once a diseased tooth has been removed and the area cleaned of infected debris, the dog can finally be relieved of the infection. Periodontal disease infections are not only uncomfortable and foul-smelling, but they also increase the risk of infection to major organ systems if bacteria from infected teeth reach the bloodstream.
Prophylaxis is a procedure that polishes a dog's teeth. The importance of recognizing that dental disease does not remain at a certain level is crucial. Dental disease continuously worsens as it advances. As dental disease advances, the treatment becomes longer and more extensive (and more expensive), which indicates that sooner is better than later when treating your pet for dental disease.
