  6. 6. Pet Dental CareCause: Infection resulting from allowing soft plaque and calculus to build up onthe tooth surface.Effects: Pet owners tend to notice bad breath in their pets, but this is the least ofour problems. First, the gums become inflamed and painful. Then the bonesupporting the tooth becomes infected causing bone loss and loose teeth. If morethan 50% of the bone supporting the tooth is lost then the tooth must beextracted. The bacteria causing periodontal disease can also lead to disease inthe heart, kidneys, and liver.Prevention: If the tooth surfaces are kept clean, then the gums will be healthy aswell. Homecare such as brushing, Dentacetic Wipes, chewing activities, andspecial diets will all help prevent dental disease. Professional dental cleaning andoral exam on a regular basis is mandatory to maintain good oral health. Thefrequency of professional dental cleanings will vary depending on the breed, ageof the pet, and the amount of homecare that is provided.For more information on oral Assessment, Treatment and Prevention,
