Cat dental cleanings anesthesia free

   

 Miami natural pet care also perform anesthesia free dental cleaning on our kitties. Less frequent than on dogs but felines also get bad breath and tartar accumulation.

Here is Jack and Arty, 8 and 3 years old domestic short hair. They were such good patients.

Cats are obligate carnivores, although pet cats consume a lot of plant material if they are fed dry cat food. None of the teeth of cats, including their molars, have grinding surfaces; they clearly evolved to eat “meat”. Permanent teeth cat formula:3incisors 1canine  3 premolars 1molar. 3 1 2 1 = 15

So about 30 teeth total.

Incisors
Cats have six incisors in the maxilla and six in the mandible.

Canines
There is one canine tooth in each quadrant of the mouth. These teeth have a single root.

Premolars

Cats have three premolars in the maxilla and two in the mandible on each side.

The maxillary 1st premolar is normally missing and the 2nd premolar is very small and often not visible. The 3rd maxillary premolar is present. The 4th premolar is termed the carnassial tooth.
The mandibular 1st and 2nd premolars are normally missing. The 3rd and 4th premolars are present.
Molars
Cats have one molar in each quadrant of the mouth. The maxillary molars form a grinding surface. The mandibular molars are called the carnassial teeth.
