Peridontal infection caused by tartar can provoke more problems than a bad breath or the loss of some teeth. It can have an impact on the normal functioning of the heart, kidneys and liver.

Some dogs, particularly amongst small breeds, have a predisposition for the collection of tartar on teeth because of the composition of their saliva and disposition of their teeth. Plaque is a result of activity of the persisting bacteria. With time, plaque is mineralised by the mineral salts which are present in the saliva and this is why tartar can develop on the teeth of your dog or cat.

If the preventive care (brushing, adequate feeding, chewing bones) does not stop the tartar collection, it is necessary to proceed to scaling. This procedure is done under the general anaesthesia and requires endotracheal intubation to prevent the entry of the heavily infected debris to the respiratory tract.
