- OraVet Dental Sealant is an invisible, polymer sealant that is applied to your pet’s teeth by your veterinarian after a dental cleaning.
- The sealant adheres to teeth to create an invisible physical barrier that helps prevent bacteria from accumulating on teeth.
- The sealant may be followed by OraVet Plaque Prevention Gel, a substance that is applied to the pet’s teeth by the owner on a weekly basis.
- OraVet Dental Sealant has been clinically proven to significantly reduce plaque and tartar formation.
Most dental disease starts with the accumulation of plaque and tartar on a pet’s teeth. These substances contain bacteria, which can get under the gums and weaken the supporting tissue around the teeth. As a result, abscesses (pus-filled swellings) can form, and teeth may loosen, become painful, or fall out. Bacteria may also enter the bloodstream and infect the heart, kidneys, and liver. A professional veterinary dental cleaning is required to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and beneath the gum line.
What Is OraVet Dental Sealant?
Once plaque and tartar are removed during a dental cleaning, your veterinarian may apply OraVet Dental Sealant. This odorless, tasteless sealant adheres to the teeth to create a physical barrier that helps prevent bacteria from accumulating on teeth. Of course, nothing can replace daily brushing. But OraVet Dental Sealant has been clinically proven to significantly reduce plaque and tartar formation.
What Is OraVet Plaque Prevention Gel?
If your veterinarian has applied OraVet Dental Sealant to your pet’s teeth, he or she may recommend the use of OraVet Plaque Prevention Gel for your pet at home. You can apply this product to your pet’s teeth on a weekly basis. When spread along the teeth and gums, the gel helps prevent further bacterial invasion.
What Are the Benefits of the OraVet System?
Most dental diets and treats are designed to help remove plaque once it has formed on the teeth. The OraVet system is designed to help prevent plaque and tartar from occurring in the first place. Still, it can’t prevent all plaque and tartar. But if you can’t brush your pet’s teeth every day, the OraVet system can help.
The more you can do to keep your pet’s teeth clean, the more you can protect your pet from the pain and discomfort of dental disease. Regular at-home dental care can also prolong the time between professional dental cleanings.
Ask your veterinarian if the OraVet dental care system is right for your pet.
