Teeth and Gum Disease

Teeth and Gums Dogs and cats do not brush their teeth on a regular basis like we do, so we would expect that there would be a buildup of tartar and plaque on the teeth after a period of time. Combined with the salivary gland secretions and the naturally occurring bacteria found in the mouth, it is not surprising that as a pet ages, the teeth and gums can be affected by the growing bacteria. In fact almost 50% of dogs over the age of 4 have plaque, tartar, calculus, or gum disease. The bacterial toxins and the chronic infection of the bones that hold the teeth in their sockets lead to entry of these bacteria into the blood stream, where they can affect the heart, the liver, the kidneys, and even the joints. Routine dental care, including regular teeth cleaning will help your pet live a long, healthier life. To schedule a dental cleaning appointment, please call 272-2200
