Modern veterinary dentistry allows us to safely anesthetize most pets to clean the teeth. Depending on your ability to brush the teeth, your pet may need its teeth professionally cleaned every 6 months to 1 year. The frequency of dental prophylaxis (cleaning) varies between each pet and is dependent on the stage of the disease, compliance of the pet, and ability of the pet owner to offer preventative home care.
