What Is Gum Disease?
Foul teeth and gum disease (known as gingivitis, from the latin it is meaning disease or itis of the gums or ginga), is a painful and debilitating disease in dogs. Sadly it is the most frequent clinical problem in small animal practice today, affecting 90% of dogs today by the age of three years. Treatment often requires anaesthesia and sometimes surgery.
How Is Gum Disease Dangerous?
It arises from a build up of plaque that, when left unattended, forms a tough layer of yellow tartar beside the blood rich gum line. Bacteria now have easy access to the blood-highway. This is bad news. This means the immune system is in a constant state of arousal, defending itself from invaders, drawing daily on the bodies resources leaving the patient more vulnerable to disease. To top it all off, a by-product of these bacteria is a bad smell, leading to all the bad breath (halitosis). It is often the first sign that all is not well in the mouth (and possibly gut). Worse still it has a knock-on effect on other organs too. “Studies have shown that advance periodontal disease can lead to heart, liver, kidney and respiratory problems. periodontitis can also complicate the management of diseases such as diabetes”
