If you don’t remove plaque in time it can cause your pet a mouthful of discomfort: tooth decay, cavities, tartar, bad breath and discolored teeth.
In the long run you could face gum recession, inflammation and periodontitis with subsequent loss of teeth. Not your favorite bucket list, right? Some would say: You had me at “bad breath”!
First things first: Tartar is plaque that has been left to harden on your pets teeth. If the tartar is located above the gum line, you might see a yellow or brown coating on the teeth. It’s impossible to remove tartar with a toothbrush, or even the strongest mouthwash. But just leaving it be is not an option if you want to remain a healthy mouth for your pet.
Well, what to do if the tartar already has formed on your pets teeth and refuses to leave? We already established that brushing won’t help at this stage.
Since tartar could lead to serious problems, like cavities and gum disease, you should visit your veterinarian who will remove the tartar under anesthetics. It’s not cosy (or cheap!), but neither are cavities and gum disease, right?
You can also use a natural supplement like ProDen PlaqueOff® as a complement to your pets daily oral hygiene routine. It will not only prevent plaque from forming to tartar; it could also reduce tartar, making your pets teeth cleaner, and freshens their breath.
