What is Oral Plaque and Periodontal Disease?

Plaque is a soft, sticky biofilm that builds up on teeth and contains millions of bacteria. Its formation is a normal process that cannot be prevented. However, if allowed to build, the bacteria in plaque cause tooth decay. This is because these bacteria produce acids from the sugars in the food that an animal eats. This acid causes the tooth enamel to break down, eventually resulting in cavities (holes) in the teeth. The bacteria in plaque also cause periodontal disease (an inflammatory disease affecting the gums and bone supporting the teeth). 

Plaque, when combined with saliva and minerals, can eventually harden into calculus (tartar). Once plaque has calcified into calculus (tartar), it requires a visit to the veterinarian for removal. If the plaque and tartar is not removed but continues to increase, the gums can become red and swollen. This is called gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease. In more severe periodontal disease, the bacterial infection causes the gums and the bone supporting the teeth to break down. Destruction of the bone supporting the teeth can lead to tooth loss.

Periodontal disease is the most common condition in pets world-wide. It eventually affects the majority of animals, with up to 80% of dogs and cats having dental problems by middle age. It causes bad breath, oral pain, reduced appetite, and if left untreated, oral infections can spread to other parts of the body, affecting organs such as the kidneys, liver and heart, and significantly shortening the life of the animal.
