Cats can have “cavities”, fractured teeth and develop gingivitis too. However, due to their ability to “hide” discomfort and pain, it is commonly overlooked and under-treated.

  • The American Veterinary Dental Society estimates that 75% of cats over 3 years of age are in need of dental care and studies show that 50% of cats over five have tooth resorptive lesions.
  • Stomatitis is another painful condition in cats that respond favorably to full mouth extraction therapy.
Tooth Resorption in cats

Feline tooth resorption is a common and painful condition in domestic cats.  Studies have shown well over 50% of adult cats develop tooth resorption.  The teeth become functionally destroyed as a result of tooth (dental) resorption.   Some teeth undergoing tooth resorption are not clinically apparent until dental radiographs are taken.
