Importance of dental health for your cat

by Alex Weber, DVM on 01/07/14

A very underrated aspect of your cat's health is it's teeth.  At our cat hospital in Tampa FL, our veterinarians see oral disease almost on a daily basis.  Since your cat doesn't brush it's teeth everyday, it is up to you and your veterinarian to keep an eye out for any dental problems.  Unfortunately, many small problems can go undetected until they are larger and harder to handle.  This is why having a yearly exam is extremely important.  Your veterinarian will look at the teeth and determine if a cleaning, or any other treatments to maintain proper oral health, are needed.  

Routine dental cleaning removes the plaque and tartar that holds the bacteria in your cat's mouth.  This bacterial overload can make your pet susceptible to kidney infections, heart valve infections, tooth root abscesses, and bone infections.  Once again, the importance of routine cleaning, before heavy amounts of tartar are visible, can not be stressed enough.
