|I've never brushed, and don't feed raw. I've only had to do a dental once on my 7 year old, and there were no extractions or gum disease, just tartar buildup. However, Kovu (RIP) was one of those cats who needed weekly brushing and yearly dentals and still passed away with hardly a tooth in his head at 10 years old.
Each cat is different. A lot of cats won't tolerate tooth brushing, and there are things you can add to their water to help (not sure how well they work). Sometimes, it may just be a matter of talking with your vet and keeping an eye on their teeth and going in for a dental when necessary.
