Instead of allowing observations about my cat's teeth to dictate the selections, I looked at the factors I could evaluate: whether my cats appeared to enjoy or at least tolerate the product, how easy the product was to use, and the product's ingredients and their known efficacy. Most importantly, I looked to see if the product had a VOHC seal of acceptance confirming its efficacy at controlling plaque and tartar.Pet:Essential Healthymouth Water Additive cleans teeth with bacteria-inhibiting enzymes and comes in more than two dozen flavors. Petsmile Toothpaste is hypoallergenic and contains calcium, magnesium, and phosphates, minerals that help to boost the strength of tooth enamel. It also contains potassium hydroxide, which neutralizes acidity to prevent tooth decay, and germ-fighting cetylpyridinium chloride. The formula is human-grade and free of BPAs, silica, sulfates, and parabens. Although there are relatively few common dental problems that affect cats, those that do can be extremely painful, especially if left untreated.

Pros: VOHC-accepted; shown to reduce plaque by more than 85% in clinical trials; contains ingredients with antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-bacterial properties and omega 3-rich salmon oil Periodontal disease: Periodontal disease starts with gum inflammation, also known as gingivitis. Gingivitis occurs when plaque, a biofilm containing thousands of bacteria, builds up on the surface of the teeth. When plaque is not regularly broken down with at-home dental care, a cat's immune system will mount a defense against the bacteria, causing the gums to become red, swollen, and painful. Over time, plaque mineralizes to form tartar or calculus which, in turn, attracts more plaque. Eventually, the gingivitis progresses to periodontitis, an irreversible condition that weakens the tissue attaching the teeth to the gums and causes teeth to loosen or fall out.There is no consensus among veterinarians about whether a diet made up primarily of wet food has a more negative impact on a cat's dental health than a dry food diet. While cats who chew their kibble may successfully break up some plaque, many cats actually swallow their kibble whole the same way they do wet food. "If you ask 10 veterinary dentists [which diet is better], you'll get four different answers," Snyder said.

Introducing a cat to tooth-brushing takes time and patience, particularly if the cat is an adult versus a more malleable and tolerant kitten.
