Gum disease in cats is only reversible if caught early on, and only the early gingivitis stage is considered fully reversible. Therefore, it is your responsibility to keep your cat’s mouth, teeth, and gums healthy and well.
Prevention of periodontal and dental disease begins at the first kitten visit or the first visit for a new adult patient at Cat Care Center. By age three, many cats have significant gingivitis and many also have periodontal disease. It is a slow progressing but serious disease that causes pain and affects their overall health and wellbeing. Cats often will not show signs of oral discomfort. Because the pain associated with dental problems comes on slowly over time, they simply learn to adapt. That is why it is important that all cats see a veterinarian annually to assess their oral health.
