Good oral hygiene is essential for your pet’s comfort.
Over time, plaque accumulates on your pet’s teeth. Plaque mainly consists of bacteria and food remains. If it is not removed through daily brushing, it will eventually become harder and more attached to the tooth. It is then referred to as tartar and it cannot be removed by simply brushing the teeth.
Plaque and tartar can lead to bad breath, dental cavities, and periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis or periodontitis.
These diseases are manifested by red and painful gums, loosening of the gums, “holes” (hidden under the plaque), moving teeth and dental hypersensitivity. They are uncomfortable for your pet and can bother him, even if your pet doesn’t show any symptom.
If left untreated, they can lead to infections and tooth loss
