If untreated, gum disease can lead to severe damage to your pet’s vital organs, so it is important to keep a check on their teeth with regular dental appointments.
The build-up of plaque and tartar on your pet’s teeth can lead to infection in the gums and roots, which is why it is important to get them checked.
Scaling tartar from the teeth and polishing the surfaces will get the mouth back to almost new if no extractions are necessary. Loose teeth and any with infected roots should be removed, as should teeth with significant feline odontoclastic resorption lesions (FORLs) in cats.
