dental disease

Our pets need good dental hygiene to maintain healthy teeth and gums throughout life. With poor dental hygiene, plaque and tartar begin to form on the teeth. Plaque and tartar cause gingivitis, which is painful inflammation of the gums. Eventually this may lead to destruction of the supporting structures of the tooth, which attach it to the jaw bone. Such damage to the supporting structures may result in loss of the tooth. Bacteria in plaque can also enter the bloodstream and spread to the vital organs. Long term dental disease is one of the most common causes of heart and kidney failure.
