Gingivitis is recognized as an early form of periodontal disease, which can cause tooth loss. Gingivitis refers to the inflammation of the gums and is reversible with treatment.
– An estimated 80 percent of pets that are three years or older suffer from some form of gingivitis.
– Possible causes of gingivitis in cats are plaque accumulation, old age, poor or lack of oral health care, crowded teeth and autoimmune diseases.
– Treatment for gingivitis includes removal of overcrowded teeth and dental appointments. Proper oral health care will prevent gingivitis.
You can help to maintain your cat’s oral health care by brushing or rubbing (with a special finger pad) the teeth once a day or at least twice a week with veterinary toothpaste.
