Dental Care 


Caring for your pet’s teeth and gums is important to his or her health. More than 85% of dogs over four years of age have evidence of periodontal disease, making it one of the most commonly seen diseases by veterinarians.

 At St. Francis Animal Hospital of the Treasure Coast, we offer dental examinations as part of your pet’s wellness care. We utilize the latest in veterinary technology to carefully examine your pet’s oral and dental health and to provide proper treatment.

How Do I Know if My Dog Has Periodontal Disease?

While there is no substitute for regular dental exams performed by your veterinarian to determine if your pet has dental disease, here are a few common signs that your pet may be suffering from oral health problems:

  • Bad breath
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Signs of pain while chewing
  • Swelling of the face or mouth
  • Swollen and bleeding gums


If your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms please call us right away.
