Pet Dental Care
Pets differ from humans in that they don't get cavities. Instead, they get what is called "periodontal disease." Plaque builds up on the teeth, usually starting at the gum line. Over time this causes gingival inflammation and recession. As the gums recede, the tooth roots are exposed, and then loosened by the bacteria/plaque. Once this has occurred, the teeth usually need to be pulled, before pain results from either the tooth being loose, or the formation of a tooth root abscess. Regular dental care delays the buildup of plaque, allowing pets to keep their teeth for many more years.
A main symptom of periodontal disease and other oral problems
is bad breath.
