Left untreated, periodontal disease will cause the gums to recede and teeth to fall out, says Kenneth F. Lyon, DVM.The cat's mouth will become sensitive and the cat may hypersalivate and rub its face with its paws or against furniture.If you notice any of these symptoms or tartar buildup, take your cat to the veterinarian for an exam.
Feline odontoclastic resorptive lesions - also known as cervical line lesions or neck lesions - may escape early detection by owners as they often start under the gum line.
...
Teeth affected by lesions eventually disappear, absorbed back into the body, Dr. Lyon says.As resorption progresses, the tooth's root structure is broken down, the enamel and the bulk of the tooth is destroyed, the tooth is replaced in its socket by bone and the crown falls away.In the early stages, these teeth can be temporarily treated, possibly with fillings, but they will continue to deteriorate.
...
The problem, first noted in the 1920s, is becoming more common, says Dr. Lyon, who estimates he sees FORL in half his clients."But we're not sure what causes it," he says.
You can try various methods of keeping your cat's teeth clean to avoid these scenarios, veterinarians say.Some breeds like Abyssinians and Persians are more prone to tooth problems and need extra attention.
Brush your cat's teeth several times weekly, ideally every day.Introduce the procedure gradually, letting your cat smell the toothpaste and brush before you use them.Keep the sessions short and sweet, rewarding your cat with praise and stroking.
...
You don't have to open its mouth completely, Dr. Lyon says; lift its lip and work on the upper outside teeth, one side at a time.Use toothpaste designed for cats, as the human kind can upset cats' stomachs.
Not all cats tolerate tooth brushing as well as Dr. DuPont's own Abyssinian, Uno, who loves to have her teeth brushed.Don't push your cat if it resists the idea.You'll end up bitten or scratched.Alternatives, like fish- or chicken-flavored tartar control treats and cylinders shaped like mice bodies, can wipe plaque off teeth as they're chewed.

"Don't crank the mouth open," Kenneth Lyon, DVM says.
Wipe the teeth using strokes from gum line to the tip of teeth, AAHA advises.
3. After your cat becomes accustomed to the gauze, it's time for a soft toothbrush.Place flavored cat toothpaste on the brush.Let your cat sniff or lick the paste.Try this for a couple days in a row.
