Periodontal therapy involves the treatment of diseases that affect tissue and structures surrounding and supporting the pet's teeth. Periodontal disease is one of the most common, if not the most common, condition affecting cats and dogs.

If your cat is suffering from periodontal disease, additional procedures can be utilized to bring your pet’s mouth back to health. A treatment category called “Guided tissue regeneration” is used in cases where attachment loss can be regained. Attachment loss is when the bone and gum tissue around the tooth is lost because of periodontal disease. In many cases, guided tissue regeneration can save a tooth that might otherwise be extracted.

Annual veterinary dental cleanings, and good home care practices are the best ways to prevent your pet from developing periodontal disease or to identify it in the earliest stages when it is most treatable.
