Dental Disease is the #1 disease problem in Dogs & Cats
What is dental disease and how does it start?
As your pet eats, food particles accumulate on and between tooth surfaces. Bacteria in the mouth digest these particles to form plaque, a sticky yellow film seen on the teeth. As this infection spreads, dental disease starts.
What is Tarter, Gingivitis & Periodontal Disease?
Plaque builds up, the bacteria causes infection to the gums known as "Gingivitis", a red line along the teeth. Eventually, plaque hardens to form "Tarter" which holds the infection to the tooth surface and pushes bacteria under the gum line. "Periodontal Disease" is this deeper infection of the teeth and roots, which ultimately results in the loss of the infected teeth.
Can bad teeth be harmful to my pet?
Dirty teeth may smell and look bad, but the damage that you don't see is much worse! The gum tissue has an extensive blood supply. When infections start, these bacteria get into your pet's circulation and eventually leads to heart, liver, kidney, bone and joint disease including organ failure.
