Add A Tooth Brushing to Your Pets Next Grooming!
Brushing dog's teeth is essential for cleaning your dog’s mouth and preventing gum disease and tooth decay. Brushing removes plaque — a sticky film made of bacteria that forms on teeth — before it has time to harden into Tartar.
Brushing dog's teeth is something you should do every day. This is the easiest way to keep your dog’s mouth healthy. If you cannot brush your dog’s teeth every day, try brushing them every other day until they get used to it.
Bad Breath (Halitosis). Bad breath is often the first sign that something is wrong with your dog’s mouth. If you notice bad breath, it could also be because they have periodontal disease or other dental issues.
Plaque. Plaque is a sticky substance that accumulates on the surface of your dog’s teeth. It comes from food particles, saliva, and bacteria in the mouth. If left untreated, plaque will degenerate into tartar (also known as calculus), leading to gum disease.
Tartar. Tartar is highly abrasive, and when it comes into contact with the gums, it causes irritation and inflammation and makes it easier for bacteria to breed in the mouth. If left untreated, this can lead to gum recession, which means that the gums pull away from the tooth roots.
Gingivitis & Periodontal Disease. Gingivitis occurs when the gums’ inflammation causes them to become red and swollen. If left untreated, this condition may cause periodontal disease (also known as gum disease). When this happens, it becomes harder for your dog to chew properly due to the loss of bone around their teeth.
Tooth Decay. Brushing dog's teeth helps prevent tooth decay by removing plaque that can build up on their teeth and gums. Plaque is made up of food particles, saliva, and bacteria, which creates acid in the mouth that attacks the teeth. This causes cavities over time when not regularly removed by brushing or cleaning between their teeth with a pet toothbrush.
