Periodontal disease (inflammation of the structures that support the tooth -including the gum, periodontal ligaments and the bone within which the tooth sits), is believed to effect at least one third of all horses, with statistics much higher in older horses.
Human research has clearly linked periodontal disease with systemic inflammatory conditions and illnesses such as arthritis, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome, recurrent infections, infertility and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Some real food for thought (excuse the pun 😉 ) given these are some of the most common health concerns experienced in the equine patient.
