We recommend applying a dental sealant every 6 month. This sealant helps prevent your pet from forming tartar and plaque. The reduction in tartar and plaques helps keep both your pets mouth and whole body healthy. This decreases the likelihood your pet will need extractions. An unhealthy mouth can lead to other health issues including infections and negative effects on the organs. Yearly dental cleanings and 6 month dental sealant applications are best way to be proactive about your pets teeth.
