Canine Dental Care
Dental care is extremely important in dogs. In fact, eighty percent (80%) of dogs show signs of oral disease by age three and eighty five percent (85%) by age four. Oral disease is the No. 1 health problem diagnosed in dogs. The more we learn to care for our pets the more we realize the need for effective dental care.
Introducing Dental Rings
Omega Paw is pleased to announce the development of Omega PawDental Ring -- a new era in canine dental care. The Omega PawDental Ring is a toothbrush for dogs that dogs actually use themselves. Omega PawDental Rings have amazing brushing power to remove plaque and tartar. Plus each Omega PawDental Ring is packed full of active ingredients to harden the enamel on dog's teeth, to prevent tooth decay and to whiten teeth.
Omega PawDental Rings are as easy as giving your dog a treat. Your dog will have a blast chewing on a Dental Ring and you can take comfort in knowing that their teeth are being cleaned right down to the gum line. The ring is a circular shape, making them easy for dogs to chew. Dental Rings come in two thicknesses permitting any size dog to penetrate their teeth into the ring for cleaning.
Omega PawDental Rings have been designed specifically for dogs and in our opinion is the most effective toothbrush ever designed for dogs which dogs actually use themselves.
The Importance of Brushing Dog's Teeth to Prevent Oral (Periodontal) Disease!
The importance of clean teeth and gums for pets is well documented and is an increasing concern of pet owners. As mentioned earlier, 80% of dogs show signs of oral disease by age three. Oral disease develops in dogs simply because their teeth are not brushed and the plaque is not removed.
Plaque is a combination of food, saliva and bacteria. As the day progresses plaque accumulates on the dog's teeth. If this plaque is not removed it will build up and then undergo a process of mineralization. Once this occurs the plaque becomes tartar (or calculus). Dogs are prone to dental disease as a result of a build up of tartar. This tartar will begin to trap food leading to inflamed gums, tooth loss, bad breath and a whole host of other problems. If the tartar is not removed pockets of pus may also appear along the gum line and further separate the tooth from the gum, which allows more food and bacteria to accumulate. Without proper dental treatment, gingivitis and periodontal disease may occur. Bacteria can also enter the bloodstream through the inflamed gum tissue and travel to the heart valves, kidneys, and liver where even more serious damage can occur.
Prevention is the only way to decrease oral disease and allow our pets to keep all of their teeth for as long as possible. Routine professional care by your veterinarian must be followed by home dental care.
Many dogs show signs of gum disease by the time they’re four years old, because they aren’t provided with proper mouth care. Bad breath is often the first sign that your dog is in need of some proper mouth care. Other signs of mouth problems include tartar build up, inflamed or red gums, loose teeth, tooth pain and bleeding.
Inside each DENTAL RING are many layers of polishing paper that brush your dog’s teeth as they chew. Simply give your dog a DENTAL RING and watch them brush their own teeth. DENTAL RING is very effective at cleaning your dog’s teeth by removing plaque and tartar, strengthening enamel, preventing gum disease and tooth decay.
Omega Paw Solutions has developed such an innovative and unique teeth cleaning device, you and your dog will absolutely love the DENTAL RING. It will make brushing their teeth the easiest chore you have to do for the day. Whether treating a mouth problem or practicing preventative care, giving dogs Omega Paw Solutions’ DENTAL RING will ensure proper and effective cleaning is taking place, for we care about your pet’s well being.
The Omega Paw Dental Ring gives you two ways to fight bad breath:
It is designed to remove plaque and tartar keeping dogs teeth clean and their breath fresh. Inside Dental Rings are several polishing layers that act as a toothbrush to clean their teeth while they chew.
Large and Small Dental Rings are available in Mint Breath Freshener.
Supervise your dog as it chews the Dental Ring for approximately 30 minutes or until the outer coating has been chewed off. Take the Dental Ring away and dispose of it immediately. Use once a week or as often as it is necessary.
Attention: The Dental Ring is NOT TO BE CONSUMED!
The Dental Ring is not a chew toy or dog treat. Ingredients may discolor upholstery and carpets. It is recommended that you give your dog a Dental Ring outside or in an area where remnants can easily be swept up.
Home dental care can be the best gift you can give your dog. If your dog does not brush daily, plaque will form at the area where the gum meet the teeth. In time, plaque will attract calcium salts and calculus (tartar) forms. The plaque and calculus irritates the gum tissue leading to gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis, if treated early can be cured. In pets, periodontitis can only be controlled, not cured. Daily brushing is the key to dental home care.
How are Dental Rings made?
Inside each Dental Ring is a dense fiber core circle. This fiber core is made of multiple layers of paper wound extremely tight to form a ring. This ring is then coated with course ground wheat, active tooth cleaning ingredients and peppermint to freshen breath.
How do I use a Dental Ring?
Simply give one to your dog and your dog will do the rest. Tests have shown that on average dogs will chew on a Dental Ring for about 30 minutes. This can range anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on how aggressive your dog chews. Once your dog is finished '"brushing" it's teeth, the Dental Ring should basically be destroyed. Some small bits and pieces may come off of the Dental Ring so we recommend it for outdoor use or in a room where any small bits can easily be swept up.
How often should I give my dog a Dental Ring?
If your dog has not had a lot of dental care, we recommend that you give your dog a Dental Ring once a day for the first seven days. This will insure that your dog's teeth have had a thorough cleaning. After this initial cleaning we recommend once a week or as often as you feel it is necessary to clean their teeth. It is very important that dogs' teeth are brushed regularly to promote healthy teeth and gums.
Why are Dental Rings so effective?
Dental Rings are the right "Toothbrush" & the right "Toothpaste". It is very important what you use to brush your dog's teeth. The enamel on dogs teeth is found to be thinner than that of human teeth, varying in thickness from 0.1 mm to 1 mm. Even the bristles of a child's toothbrush are too hard for pets. Dental Rings are made of many layers of paper. As a dog begins to chew on a Dental Ring, it softens allowing the teeth to sink in between the layers. This is a very gentle process of cleaning teeth. As a dog continues to chew, the fiber paper layers begin to rub and brush their teeth. This continuous brushing action removes the plaque, tarter and stains from the teeth, polishing them smooth so that the plaque has a more difficult time attaching to or remaining on the teeth.
There are also a number of dentifrices (dental cleansers) used to aid in cleaning and polishing the dog's teeth. The ideal pet dentifrice contains (1) gentle abrasives such as, calcium carbonate and silicate and (2) active cleaning ingredients. Each Dental Ring is packed full of both types of dental cleaners.
Mint Dental Rings
Sodium Silicate is located between each paper layer and its purpose is to polish teeth leaving them smooth
Dicalcium Phosphate has a two fold purpose. First it acts as an abrasive to help further polish teeth and secondly the calcium strengthens the enamel on their teeth
Sodium Perborate is a tooth whitener
Peppermint Oil is added to help freshen breath
Ground Wheat coating helps remove plaque and tartar build up. It is important to keep dogs chewing on the Dental Ring so that their teeth are constantly coming in contact with the dental cleaning ingredients
