Heres the top five dental problems seen in our pets: 1) Fractured teeth 25% of dogs present with a fractured tooth. Many of these teeth have exposed roots and are painful. 2) Draining tracts form periodontal disease called Parulis and draining tracts that erupt on the face from endodontic infections 3) Tooth resorption occurs in up 50% of cats. These can be very painful and result in the death of the tooth. 4) Stomatitis is a painful inflammatory condition of the gingiva. This is seen primarily in cats as a reaction to dental tartar on the teeth. We are on the lookout for these common problems when we do our oral exam at your pets annual wellness visit.
