85% of our pets over the age of 3 have dental disease. Dental problems can lead to fatal conditions in our pets, through advances in animal health, pets like yours can live a lot longer these days with healthy teeth and gums. Unfortunately, it’s our experience that for many pets this is not the case. The problem is that UNHEALTHY teeth and gums are prone to infection that can spread from periodontal (gum) disease to the rest of the body…and if that happens, it can be a painful problem!
Infectious oral diseases affecting the gums and root canals create bacteria in the bloodstream, which can infect other parts of the body. In fact, periodontal inflammation and infection have been linked to numerous problems including heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, emphysema, liver disease, osteoporosis, pregnancy problems, and diabetes. This has led oral infectious diseases to become known in veterinary circles as “the silent killer.”
Just as with us, a good dental care routine can prevent gum disease with is why it’s so important to get your pet checked. Pets should have their teeth examined, at least annually but think about this…one year in your life is like five to seven years for pets, a lot of changes can happen in one year. Remember humans get their teeth checked once every six months, and brush their teeth twice per day, yet pets use their mouths much more than you do!
