  • Daily dental care for pets is significantly more
    than an aesthetic concern. Daily dental care is
    crucial protection against periodontal disease
    the most common cause of bad breath in dogs and
  • Periodontal disease, which is caused by plaque
    and tartar buildup, can result in tooth loss
    and oral diseases. Periodontal disease can also
    have a secondary effect on specific organs (such
    as the heart, kidneys, and liver), causing or
    exacerbating organ system disorders. According to
    surveys and research, more than 80 of dogs and
    70 of cats have some sort of dental illness by
    the age of three.

Here are some of the most frequently asked
questions regarding pet dental health that
explain more about the importance of pet dental
care to help pet owners with pet dental care and
help pets avoid the risks of periodontal disease.
  • 1  What factors contribute to dental disease?
  • Plaque bacteria cause periodontal disease.
  • Plaque is a sticky substance that builds on
    teeth after brushing or professional cleaning.
  • Plaque is made up of regular mouth bacteria,
    saliva, and food particles.
  • The oral bacteria initiate a cycle of
    inflammation that can be limited to the gingiva,
    or it can continue and cause major periodontal
    disease that travels down the tooth, causing bone
    loss and infection, both of which can have
    catastrophic local and systemic (body-wide)

  • 2  What are the symptoms of dental disease?
  • Bad breath (halitosis), edema and redness of the
    gum tissue or other soft tissues in the mouth,
    drooling or excessive salivation are the most
    prevalent symptoms.
  • Other symptoms include chewing trouble,
    discolored or broken teeth, loose or missing
    teeth, nasal discharge or sneezing, and swelling
    of the cheek, jaw, or neck.

  • 3  How do plaque and tartar differ?
  • Plaque is a bacterial colony that has been
    combined with saliva, blood cells, and other
    bacterial components.
  • Plaque is frequently the cause of tooth and gum
  • Dental tartar, also known as calculus,
    forms when plaque mineralizes (hardens) and
    firmly attaches to the tooth enamel, eroding the
    gingival tissue.

  • 4  What is the impact of periodontal disease on
    my pet?
  • Periodontal disease can cause discomfort, gum
    infection, and tooth loss on a local (in the
    mouth) level.
  • Chronic periodontal tissue infection permits
    bacteria to enter the bloodstream, seeding the
    internal organs (heart, kidneys, liver) and
    potentially leading to catastrophic infections in
    these organs.

  • 5  Is it necessary to brush my dogs teeth
  • Brushing your pets teeth twice a day is
    recommended by a veterinary dentist.
  • Most dog owners brush their dogs teeth at least
    once each day, and some do it every few days,
    which is great.
  • A minimum of three brushings each week is
    recommended to minimize plaque and tartar
  • Brushing your dogs teeth on a regular basis
    allows you to monitor the health of his mouth.
  • Examine the area from the roof of the mouth to
    the area beneath the tongue.
  • These surfaces should be kept wet and smooth at
    all times.

  • 6  My dog dislikes brushing teeth. What Should I

Brushing your dogs sparkling whites should
ideally begin when he or she is a puppy. It may
take a little longer for an adult dog to accept
dental brushing, but it is well worth the time
and effort! To successfully train your pet, you
must make it a pleasurable experience for him or
  • Here are some tips to assist you to accomplish
    this huge task
  • Locate a location free of distractions.
  • Place tiny dogs in your lap, facing away from
    you. If you have a large dog, place them on a
    chair next to you so you can comfortably hold its
  • Gently rub your finger or a soft cloth over the
    outside surface of your dogs teeth.
  • Rub only a few teeth at a time during the first
    few sessions, rather than the entire mouth. This
    will make brushing teeth more comfortable for
    frightened pets.
  • Apply pet toothpaste to your finger and give it
    to them to taste. When your dog is calm, apply
    some to a tiny cloth and rub it all over their
    teeth. You can do this until your pet is used to
    having his teeth rubbed.
  • Once your dog is comfortable, you can begin
    using a special toothbrush. Apply a small bit on
    the toothbrush, and then gently elevate one side
    of your pets mouth. Brush one side for 30
  • Tilt your dogs head backward while holding the
    top jaw with your thumb and index finger to wash
    their lower teeth.

  • 7  What can happen if I dont brush my pets
  • Plaque and tartar both harm the teeth and gums.
  • The gums are the first to be affected by the
    disease (gingiva).
  • They become inflamed, turning red, bloated, and
  • The gums eventually separate from the teeth,
    forming pockets where bacteria, plaque, and
    tartar can accumulate.
  • These, in turn, cause further damage and,
    eventually, tooth and bone loss.

The Last Word
  • Brush your dogs pearly teeth at least three to
    five times each week to eliminate plaque and
    prevent tartar formation. Gingivitis, an
    inflammation of the gum line produced by plaque
    bacteria, is a common precursor to periodontal
  • As a result, it is critical that your dogs teeth
    are kept clean in between brushings. No other
    factors such as heavy pressurize brushing
    with two-headed toothbrushes in which your dog
    may feel it irritating and will not allow you to
    do his/her brushing easily.
