Dental care for cats – what is important?
Tooth disease and infections in the gums and oral mucosa (stomatitis, gingivitis) are a common problem with cats.
The main causes of teeth problems and infections in the mouth are soft plaque and tartar. Tartar arises when minerals build up as soft plaque. The best way to fight tartar is by removing soft plaque – for example, by feeding the cats treats to clean their teeth. Plaque is one of the main causes of gum infections If this type of gingivitis is not treated quickly, so-called periodontitis occurs and the periodontium and jawbone will become infected and shrink. Periodontal pockets can also form, which are an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. The sensitive tooth necks are exposed and, if the problems continue, the teeth nerves can become painfully infected and purulent.
Dental care is therefore especially important for cats. However, most cats will not tolerate having their teeth cleaned. Luckily, there are very good alternatives.
The brand-new tooth care treats and snacks with cellulose cleansing bodies clean cats’ teeth gently and entirely naturally and remove the plaque. No plaque means no tartar and no infection. The soft cellulose cleansing bodies are very gentle on the gums and this is why these teeth-cleaning treats can also be used for cats who already have a slight reddening on their gums. The Superfood Dental Snacks also contain mint, which is particularly attractive for cats as it keeps their breath fresh.
