Periodontal disease is an inflammation or infection of the tissues surrounding the teeth and often times can be prevented with basic dental upkeep. Periodontal disease starts as gingivitis caused by plaque and often progresses to involve the bony tooth sockets. Left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to painful tooth loss.
Plaque is an accumulation of bacteria and is a sticky substance that begins to accumulate on the teeth within hours after a meal or even after a professional tooth cleaning. Within a day, plaque combines with minerals that are present in the saliva to become tartar, also known as calculus. The Veterinary Oral Health Counsel has a list of diets that can decrease tartar accumulation. This list can be found at vohc.org.
Often times, dental diseases can causes significant and chronic pain in canines. When a dental disease is discovered later in life, after years of buildup have caused diseased teeth, then your pet has already experienced significant, chronic, life-changing pain. The thing is that animals instictually hide signs of pain. What you'll see is that your pet is increasingly irritable and lethargic and has a decreased appetite—changes you may attribute to your pet’s advancing age or other lifestyle factors.
X-rays are essential for diagnosing dental disease. After examining dental radiographs (X-rays) of dogs with teeth that appeared normal to the naked eye, veterinarians found 27.8% of dogs had diseased teeth. In pets with abnormal-looking teeth, veterinarians found additional diseased teeth in 50% of dogs.
