Kittens are usually born with no teeth.

Temporary teeth only starts appearing at the age of 2-3 weeks for kittens.
Adult teeth will slowly begin to replace the milk teeth at about 16 weeks.

Gums should be a healthy pink in colour with no redness or bleeding where the gums meet at the teeth.

Temporary teeth are sharp & will look similar to each other

There should be no discomfort when eating

plaque & tartar

Plaque is a mix of oral bacteria, food debris & proteins in the saliva, which sticks to the surface of the teeth. Tartar is then formed once it hardens.


When you are examining your cat's mouth or brushing her teeth, make sure:

1 her back is towards you;

2 stop to check if your cat is showing signs of discomfort/distress

Visiting the veterinary clinic also serves as an excellent source of information as the vet can provide thorough examinations and advice on all aspects of dental care.
