Cat Mouth Cavity Illnesses - Teeth Damage

Cats are created to hunt. That is why they need sharp teeth, in order for them to be able to catch their prey, kill it and then eat it. A cat owner must always keep this in mind. If you keep a cat at home and only eat soft food, their teeth will eventually suffer. The first symptom that something is wrong in the mouth cavity is the lack of decision at the moment of biting. Chewing food results painful and impossible. Saliva flow increases and cats end up loosing weight.

Teeth damage
A cat well taken care of and reasonably nourished should have healthy and resplendent teeth. In their youth, they are still white and with the years they turn yellow, which is completely normal. The transparent enamel gets worn out and yellow teeth stay in sight. However, it is not normal to have a thick layer known as tartar. Tartar develops when the food is too soft. At first it deposits remains in layers that enlarge until instead of having sharp teeth, cats end up having in their jaws brittle calcareous formation. 

Do not try to detach them on your own. Sharpened instruments to withdraw deposits that can be bought in sanitary stores provoke in gums bleeding wounds due to the inevitable defensive movements of cats. They are mild injuries, but do not increase by any means the disposition of cats to stay still. A thoroughly elimination of tartar must be done by a veterinarian who will sedate the animal with some medication and then calmly can exam the denture using special instruments. In the progress, some surprises can be experimented. Some are favorable, when it can presume again having nice and shiny teeth; in other cases, when treating old cats, some loose teeth might be found which the veterinarian will extract, taking advantage of the circumstance. Dental injuries such as a broken tooth are more rare in cats than dogs. It happens especially when they carry stones in the passion of a game. Unfortunately caries can appear owed to bad nourishment. Veterinarians have the possibility of extracting disabled teeth, or paste them or they put a wreath, when a fang is broken. This is work for a specialist and it only makes sense to do it on very valuable animals. 

It’s about preventing damages in teeth. Naturally, they can be cleaned, but there exist toothpaste or powder especially for small animals. Nevertheless, cats are more displeased by this than dogs. However, why bother with so many inconveniences? The degree of hardness of food influences in a very simple way the condition of teeth. Resistant food polishes teeth in a natural way. It doesn’t want to take in food? Exaggerating a little, I would say once its stomach starts growling, it will even eat dry leaves. It won’t be that hard to get it used to this change in food. Thereby you can provide your cat in a very simple way implacable denture.
