Periodontal disease is common in adult dogs and cats. It begins when bacteria in the mouth form a substance called plaque that sticks to the surface of the teeth. Subsequently, minerals in the saliva harden the plaque into dental calculus (tartar), which is firmly attached to the teeth. The real problem develops as plaque and calculus spread under the gum line and leads to periodontal disease.
The only way to prevent periodontal disease is to start before periodontal disease exists. Periodontal Prophylaxis (Prophy) is a cleaning procedure performed to thoroughly clean the teeth to prevent any periodontal diseases. It’s an excellent procedure to help keep the oral cavity in good health and also halt the progression of any gum disease.
