Because dental disease leads to:
Pain. Most pain in pets is unrecognized by owners. Pets do not show pain as we would expect. Dental disease can cause tremendous discomfort and when the source of pain is removed, we see their increased energy and improved well-being.
Like people pets also feel the pain. Pain threshold of pets in regards to dental conditions such as tooth fractures, pulp exposure, periodontal disease, tooth root abscess etc. is similar to that of people.
Pets use their teeth much like people use their hands. Any condition affecting their teeth makes them handicapped.
Infection. Bacteria from oral disease can also cause infection in other organs, such as heart, liver, kidneys, joints and lungs, thus reducing the pet’s vitality and its quality of life.
Bad breath. Periodontal disease may be one of the causes of your pet’s bad breath. People tend to withdraw affection and attention from pets with bad breath.
