Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most common conditions seen by veterinarians today. The problem begins when plaque and tartar are allowed to build up on your pet’s teeth. Plaque harbors the bacteria, which can infect gum tissue and the roots of the teeth resulting in disease and tooth loss. Besides the negative impact on the oral cavity, bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the large network of blood vessels located near gums and teeth. Recent studies have documented that certain heart, liver, and kidney disease may be associated with this bacteria.
