Dental disease can be assosciated with other comprehensive health care. “Doggy breath” is more than just an unpleasant odor, it is the sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria which leads to tatar and plaque build-up. Common signs of dental disease are bad breath, red/swollen gums and visible tartar on the teeth. If left unchecked these conditions will progress to advanced dental disease often leading to loose or missing teeth, difficulty eating, and uncomfortable swellings or abcesses.
