INTRODUCTION TO TEETH CLEANING
(for dogs)

Just like in humans, dogs teeth also need looking after. Unlike humans they can’t tell you if they are having toothache or pains from their mouth. A dogs mouth means far more to them too, it is how they interact with the world, biting furniture, chewing sticks they find on the floor, destroying toys, eating all kinds of things they find..

As dog owners we are best to just keep their mouth in check (Easier said than done). Dogs can succumb to the same type of things humans do as well, plaque, cavities, gingivitis, etc. Here at Staceys Dog Grooming we have 2 different methods of teeth cleaning.


1) the Emmi Pet Ultra Sonic Teeth Cleaning System.. and
2) Conventional, dog teeth cleaning brush and gel.

See the sections below for the differences.

 

Cleaning dogs teeth in an ideal world would happen every day, but as it will often be difficult chore we suggest doing it at least every month or 2. If you get regular grooms it might be worth tying the teeth cleaning with these appointment.

The toothbrushes will need to be replaced and how often this needs to be done can differ from dog to dog. If they chew, or lick while getting their teeth cleaned this might wreck the bristles sooner than other dogs that just sit still. We usually say about 15-20 sessions for a brush but it really does depend on the dog. 

 

Some dogs maybe unable to use our service, if their teeth are too bad and they are in pain while we brush they may need to seek Vet treatments. Maybe they just wont stop chewing the toothbrush or worse our fingers! The toothbrush or toothbrush head can’t be refunded, but if we are unable to clean your dogs teeth then we will refund any sessions already paid for minus the cost of the brush. 

EMMI PET (Ultra Sonic Teeth Cleaning)

The Ultrasonic Toothbrush by Emmi Pet. This is a state of the art toothbrush that vibrates the bristles 96 million times a minuet! This high frequency is so fast that you can’t feel the movement, and it is absolutly silent when running. Because of this, it makes the teeth cleaning service great for dogs who are not happy with having their teeth scrubbed. 

The magic occurs in the specially formulated toothpaste. When applied with the ultrasonic vibrations the toothpaste creates Nano Bubbles that continually form and pop. This popping action helps agitate and loosen the plaque from the teeth. For this popping action to be most effective and part of the benifits of the Emmi Pet system the toothbrush is actually held in place on each tooth individually rather than using a brushing action. The Nano bubbles are smaller than the bacteria themselves so can reach all the same places to move the bacteria out! For stubborn more built up plaque we would first scrape on it with the Emmi Pet scraper before continuing with the ‘brushing’. See below for prices on this service.

Conventional Teeth Cleaning

Pretty straight forward, its a lot like how we humans brush our teeth, but with the only real difference we will start by scraping your dogs teeth with our scraping tool, and then when we brush them we use a gel not a paste. The process after these differences is as expected. A dog toothbrush is used and we just brush the teeth using the power of the plaque fighting gel and the abrasion of the brush to remove the plaque. We then give a fresh breath mouth spray as the teeth cleaning gel is not minty flavoured as it is designed for dogs. Please see below for prices.

Home Maintenance Kit


 Contains :

1x Rope Toy

1x Bottle of Plaque fighting gel

1x Fresh Breath Spray

1x Pack of Denta Sticks

 – £15

 


 

Info : Denta Sticks are firm rough surfaced treats made to have angular shapes and grooves. This is to help push up the teeth and rub against the plaque on the teeth. They are however no replacement for brushing and are just treats at heart. The gel is to be placed on the rope toy and then a good old game of tug’o’war. The teeth will sink into and around the rope toy which will be covered in the plaque fighting gel. The gel will get right down the gum line of the teeth without your hands and fingers being in danger of a chomp! Finish with a quick spray (1-2 squirts) for a nice minty fresh smelling breath.

Health Benefits and Information

   All us dog owners want the best for our doggos, and we care for their wellbeing. Looking after their dental care should not be over looked. If you have Pet Insurance, it might be worth checking to see if it includes free dental care. If not we can help and at reasonable price.

 

There are the usual and obvious reasons to look after your dogs teeth. 

  • Tooth loss – If their teeth are not cleaned the teeth can rot and fall out. This can causes problems for them eating as well as their face profile looking different. 
  • Bad Breath – The bacteria that is all over your dogs mouth getting out of control can lead to bad breath. Dogs breath can smell for a number of reasons, such as eating ‘dirt’, but one of the contributing factors is the bacteria.

 

There are the other more serious issues a dental care plan can help fight.

  • Oral Pain – Because our dogs cant tell us when they are in pain and where it is, your dog maybe suffering in silence. It might effect their behaviour, maybe lashing out, crying or just acting more withdrawn. Anyone who has had a tooth infection knows how painful it is, can effect sleep, mood, appetite.
  • Disease – Gingivitis is a common gum disease. Along with Periodontal which is an inflammation of the gums deep down round the root of the teeth.
  • Organ damage and Heart Disease – This is the least thought of issue. With all the bacteria and plaque in your dogs mouth, multiplying. This can be end up getting consumed when they eat, possibly getting into the dogs blood stream where they can then infect other organs in the body. 

So what can you do?

Getting your dog on a dental plan is a good start, frequent regular brushing is the best treatment. Watching the types of food your dogs eat, just like humans, if they eat a lot of biscuits and cakes and left overs the sugars will break down the teeth’s enamel. Dog toys designed to help clean their teeth, often with lots of rubber prongs that when they bite will rub against their teeth. Something like the Rubber Toothbrush Toy Our home maintenance kit is a good choice with the plaque fighting gel on the rope toy to help clean teeth while they play.

If your dog is suffering quite bad with their teeth they may need to see the vet where they will be knocked out so the vet can get a really good clean on all the teeth unobstructed by a dog chewing and licking. 

If you find any errors within any of these, please do let us know.
