Dental Problems Dogs Encounter Across The Years 

What's true for humans' dental health often applies to cats and dogs' persistent gingivitis or stubborn baby teeth: Toothaches can be a royal pain.

Gum Disease

Gum disease is one of the most prevalent dental disorders cats and dogs face. Gum disease affects 70% of cats and 80% of dogs by age two, according to one research.

Dental Abscess

When an injury at the base of a dog or cat's tooth becomes infected, dental abscesses may develop. Even minor wounds can cause oral abscesses in animals.

Tooth Resorption

In the animal kingdom, including humans, tooth resorptions are a dental ailment that primarily affects cats but can also afflict dogs. 

Oral Tumors

When it comes to dental issues in dogs, oral tumors are rather prevalent and typically affect animals older than ten years old. 

Retained Baby Teeth

Cats and dogs often retain deciduous teeth (sometimes called “baby teeth”). Dogs, especially tiny breeds like Yorkshire Terriers, Maltese, and Pomeranians, have them more often.
