We humans can’t really live well without brushing out teeth every single day. How do animals live their whole life without any dental care for their teeth.
Actually we can really survive our entire life without any type of dental care. But you know, we eat a lot of bad sugary or fatty foods every single day. I mean not every single day. But you know what I mean lol.
Sugar is so bad for our teeth. But good for our taste. So we can’t remove sugar completely from our food.
Well, the question is not about how to live without dental care. It’s about how wild animals or pets live their entire life without dental care.
Most animals live around 20-30 years. Where we humans live more than 60 years on an average. If animals lived that long then I’m pretty sure they were also going to face issues like tooth decay.
But they don’t live that long.
And as I mentioned in the first few paragraphs, they don’t really eat that much sugar or fat in their food.
But let’s say you have pets in your house and you give them pet foods to eat with high sugar level. Do pets survive while eating them? Not everyone. That’s why you can get pets like dogs or cats with rotten teeth. But they are pets so we can take them to doctors when ever we want.
But in case of wild life. There are no doctors. So if carnivores lose their canines from a fight or hunting accident it is over for them–they die of hunger. It was also same for we humans. Early humans have been found with cause of death due to infection from tooth decay.
- Animals generally don’t live that long just like we humans.
- They don’t eat much sugary or fatty foods in their day to day life.
I hope you got the answer to how does animals live their entire life without any type of dental care.
