Dental care is so important when it comes to our pets, but so many owners forget this step in pet care. Improper dental care can affect a pet’s eating habits, behavior, temperament, and adjacent organs. Pet owners should practice dental care daily to prevent tooth decaying elements to build up in the mouth. When a pet chews food, the teeth and saliva work together to break it down in order to be digested but the food that is not swallowed remain between the teeth. The remaining food within the mouth becomes cemented to the teeth due to the mineral elements in the saliva. If this cemented food remains in the mouth for duration of time, bacteria will begin eating away at the deposits.The bacteria may remove the cemented food from the teeth but they also remove the outer layers of the tooth. A healthy tooth is made up of four basic structures; the enamel, the dentin, the cementum, and the pulp. These structures all act as structural support systems to the powerhouse of the tooth, the pulp. The pulp contains tissues, blood vessels, and nerves. If the bacteria decompose these protective structures this leaves the pulp open for foreign contaminants. When the tooth becomes infected, the bacteria can eventually seep into the blood stream, floating freely throughout the body. This infection leads to secondary complications to the heart and kidneys.
