Our Dog Teeth Cleaning Services

  • Tooth Extraction (if necessary): In cases where teeth are irreparably damaged or causing pain, we perform safe extractions.

Common Dog Dental Problems

Signs that your dog may need a visit to the dentist include bad breath, excessive drooling, difficulty eating, pawing at the mouth, and blood in their saliva or on toys. Just like humans, dogs can suffer from various dental problems, such as:
  • Plaque and Tartar Buildup: Leading to more serious oral health issues.
  • Gingivitis: Inflammation of the gums that can be painful and lead to tooth loss.
  • Periodontal Disease: Affects the supporting structures of the teeth and can lead to serious health issues.
  • Tooth Decay: Can cause significant pain and impact eating habits.
  • Halitosis (Bad Breath): Often a sign of underlying dental problems.

Benefits of Bringing Your Dog to the Dentist

Regular visits to a dog dentist are integral to maintaining your dog’s overall health and wellbeing. Good dental hygiene extends far beyond preventing bad breath; it’s a critical component of your dog’s long-term health care. Consistent dental check-ups can prevent oral diseases such as gingivitis and periodontal disease. These conditions, if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss, severe pain, and even systemic health issues.


Poor dental hygiene can result in bacteria from the mouth entering the bloodstream, potentially affecting vital organs and leading to conditions like heart and kidney diseases. Keeping your dog’s teeth clean ensures their comfort, preventing painful conditions that can affect their ability to eat, play, and enjoy life.


Regular dental care is also an opportunity for early detection of other health issues. Our dentists can spot signs of nutritional deficiencies, systemic illnesses, and other concerns during a routine dental examination. Furthermore, maintaining your dog’s dental health in Singapore is a cost-effective way to prevent complex dental problems in the future.

How to Keep Your Dog’s Teeth Clean

Preventive dental care is essential. Here are some ways to maintain your dog’s dental health:

  • Daily Brushing: Using a dog-specific toothbrush and toothpaste.
  • Dental Chews and Toys: These can help reduce plaque and tartar buildup.
  • Regular Vet Check-Ups: Crucial for monitoring and maintaining oral health.

Frequently Asked Questions about our Dog Dentists in Singapore

Dental cleanings should start as early as possible, generally around the age of one year (but it’s never too late to begin).

While anaesthesia-free cleanings can remove visible tartar, they don’t clean below the gumline where most dental diseases occur. Additionally, without anaesthesia, a thorough examination of your dog’s oral cavity to identify hidden problems like tooth resorption or deep-rooted infections may not be possible.

Signs your dog may require professional teeth cleaning services include bad breath, loose teeth, discoloured teeth, reluctance to eat, and visible tartar or plaque.

The length of a cleaning depends on your dog’s specific needs, but most cleanings are completed within a few hours.
Introducing dental care routines gently and gradually at home can help your dog become accustomed to the process, reducing stress during professional teeth cleanings.
