- The American Veterinary Dental Society estimates that 70% of cats and 80% of dogs suffer from some form of gum disease by the time they are 2 to 3 years old.
- Oral care in pets is done using traditional techniques like mechanical action (brushing), antimicrobial products such as mouthwash and dental chews like bones. However, these products destroy the whole oral flora, leaving space for harmful bacteria to colonize.
- Most dental diseases in dogs and cats occur below the gum line.
