Dog Medical Insurance
Dog medical insurance for dental problems is not cheap and so I was looking for some advice about how to better care for my dog's teeth and this is what I found. Dental infections tend to extend very rapidly all over the teeth and their roots as well. Finally, they end up rotting the bone that holds the dog's teeth in. When this happens to a dog, it causes a lot of pain, and with time, the dog's teeth or tooth falls out. Usually this happens to several teeth at a time. Cavities, which are the destruction of the teeth due to bacteria, tend to be less frequent inthan in humans. There are some breeds though, such as the Labrador retriever, which has sensitive teeth making them more prone to suffer from cavities. If an animal is given a lot of sugary meals and does not get the proper oral hygiene, it's probable the animal will get cavities. If this type of problem is detected at an early stage, it can be resolved, the same as with humans, by eliminating the infected areas and then adding a filling. In cases where the problem has gone too far, there is no other solution but to remove the whole tooth. If a young dog losses a tooth, it's possible for the veterinarian to sometimes resolve the problem and on occasions the teeth continues to grow normal. However, if a tooth breaks and the veterinarian does not intervene at the right moment, infections can show up and these in turn cause a lot of pain in the jaw bone, which is where the root of the dog's teeth is.
One very common problem in the gums is a disease called epulis, which is a protuberance that is actually not dangerous for thehealth and which can be removed easily. This problem is sometimes seen in Boxers. There are many other tumors that can form in a dog's mouth and it's very important these get removed right away, although on occasions removing the tooth does not get rid of the problem. If you find a lump or lesion in your dog's mouth, it's very important you let the veterinarian know about it right away.
