Dental Problems in Dogs

Dental Problems in Dogs range from bad breath to tooth loss. Over time plaque will build up on the teeth and eventually turn into tartar.
Your vet should examine your dogs teeth during every regularly scheduled veterinary exam. The most important thing to do is address dental problems as soon as they are detected, no matter how minor. In most cases dental problems in dogs are the result of an accident. In more serious cases surgery may be required to repair or replace fixed teeth.
Cost to Treat: $250 to $1,500
Note About Dental Care
Pet insurance doesn't cover regular teeth cleanings, only dental problems that result from accidents. However, pet wellness plans will pay for annual dental care for your dog. Getting your dog's teeth cleaned will cost $250 to $400 each time. The reason teeth cleaning is so expensive is they have to put dogs under anesthesia in order to clean out the plaque.
