Did you know that 80% of dogs over three years of age suffer from periodontitis, the inflammation of gums due to tartar build-up. Dental problems can be very painful for dogs and, if left untreated, can cause other problems around the body such as kidney disease or heart disease.
Caring for your dog’s gums and teeth is vital in the prevention of tartar build up and prolonging their health.
The ultrasound teeth cleaning system used by Precious Paws offers the following benefits:
- Fast and highly efficient antibacterial cleaning
- Tartar removal plus oral cleaning where bristles can’t reach
- Reduces unpleasant mouth odour
- Improves blood circulation and reduces inflammation in gums
- No anaesthetic risk
- Prevention of new plaque and tartar formation
The toothbrush used to clean your dog’s teeth resembles a human electric toothbrush, however it does not :
- Make any noise
- Need to be moved back and forth
The brush can simply be placed and held on the dog’s teeth and gums without pressure and is therefore better tolerated in many dogs than some other manual devices.
What is Ultrasound?
Gentle air vibrations produced via the chip in the toothbrush. Every second, one million oscillations flow through the bristles and the foam (created from the toothpaste). These waves can reach anywhere in the oral cavity, even the smallest cracks and crevices that a normal toothbrush could not reach. This also means that the ultrasound can penetrate the gum tissue delivering gentle yet effective cleaning even for the most sensitive teeth and gums.
How often should I clean my dog’s teeth?
If your dog’s teeth are free from tartar and their gums are not red or swollen, this treatment should be carried out once or twice a week. For dogs with a larger build up of tartar and/or swelling of the gums, cleaning should be as often as possible – there are no harmful side effects.
What toothpaste is used?
The toothpaste used with this system contains no abrasive particles often found in other toothpastes. These particles, over time, can cause damage to, and erosion of the tooth enamel. This toothpaste creates nano bubbles through which the ultrasound waves are conducted into the dog’s mouth, reaching everywhere, even the finest cracks between the teeth and in gum pockets.
