Annual dental exams and cleanings are recommended to protect your pet from health problems and maintain a healthy and non smelly mouth.
When the primary teeth do not fall out on time, there is not enough space for the permanent teeth to move into the correct spot as seen here. The permanent canine teeth are positioned too far in the mouth and closing the mouth can be very painful.
When two teeth share the same space, the main permanent tooth is at risk. Food and debris can get caught between the teeth, making oral hygiene difficult. The teeth are at greater risk for developing periodontal disease.
The lower canine is maligned, bumping into the cat's upper gums every time she closes her mouth. Moving this tooth toward the side of the mouth will allow the cat to close her mouth comfortably and the tooth will regain its function.
