Does my pet truly need a dental procedure?

Tartar often builds up on the molars, premolars, and canines. We see this often in small breed dogs. The accumulation of tartar can lead to periodontal disease which can often be noted by the redness of the gums around that affected tooth. Periodontal disease leads to gingivitis and may eventually cause loosening or loss of the tooth. "The longer the teeth live, the longer the pet lives."
