My Vet said that bad teeth can cause all kinds of health issues.
Yes my Vet told me all the side of effects of having bad teeth. This was not directed at me but at my dog. My dogs teeth has bad tarter on them. Any way that is my dog. The thing that got me thinking is that my teeth are not in the greatest shape either.
I had bad teeth since I was young. I never really took care of them when I was a teen since I was going though a lot of stuff at the time. Now I do take way better care of my teeth but I have not been to the dentist in over two years. I just really do not like the dentist they freak me out. Even the thought of going to the dentist makes me queasy.
Now however, if bad teeth can cause a dog to have heart disease, strokes, kidney disease and other health issues. Will having bad teeth cause me to have the same risks? I know it is silly to compare a human with a dog but my family already has some of these health issues. I do not need another reason why I may have these issues latter on in life. Am I making to much out of this? Oh and by the way my Vet is cleaning my dog teeth tomorrow so I am having that done.
