Default How often does your dog get dentals?

Assuming you brush their teeth pretty regularly.

Is it more often as they get older?

At what age did they get their first dental?

It depends a lot on the dog. Some of my dogs need dentals every year no matter what I do (starting around 18 months). Roo is 4 1/2 and has never had one. I think a lot of it is genetic as far as the bone density in the mouth and gum disease.

Zooey gets one once a year. She was approx. 3 years old when I adopted her and that was probably her first.

I take mine once per year, but I don't think dentals are as thorough in Greece & I don't think they polish teeth afterward---which can cause MORE tartar build-up! Lisi hasn't had one yet, and she is 15 months old.

I've got one who goes in every 6 months, 2 who go in once a year, one who's on an every other year schedule, and one who has never had one. Go figure.
