How to Keep Your Dogs Teeth Clean With Proper Brushing And Dental Hygiene

One of the most important things you want to do for your little Chihuahua, Bull Dog, Labrador or other precious breed of dog is to keep him healthy. His teeth should be part of that. So the best way to ensure that your dog has healthy teeth is to brush them for him. If you don't do this, your dog may end up with gum disease and lose his teeth and may even be fatal. But how do you do it properly?

By not brushing your dogs teeth, just like humans there is going to be a build up of tartar and plaque and this is what will cause the damage to both his gums and his teeth. Not only could his teeth rot out but it could turn into periodontal disease which will eventually affect his entire body from his blood stream to other major organs like his heart and even his kidneys.

First thing to do is to find an old toothbrush that no one is using so that you can use it just for your dog for the sole purpose of cleaning his teeth. Make sure that you take this old brush and make sure that you clean it really good before using it on his teeth.

After you have washed off the brush it's a good idea for you to allow your dog to go ahead and smell the brush and let him lick it if he wants to before you decide to brush his teeth. This way he will get a sense for it and discover that it's nothing for him to be afraid of. Go ahead and let him put it in his mouth on his own and let him chew on it a little bit too if he wants to. All of this lets him see there is nothing about the brush that can harm him.

Once it's in his mouth go ahead and start slowly moving the brush around his mouth and on his teeth gently so that he gets use to the idea of you putting this thing in his mouth whenever you want to take care of his teeth.

After this you should make sure to lay your dog down on the floor and make sure his head is lying flat on the floor. You can either use special dog toothpaste or nothing at all to brush his teeth. Never use human toothpaste to brush your dogs teeth. If you don't have toothpaste don't worry about. Just brushing will help to get a lot of the plaque and tartar off.

Next you will pull their lip up if you have to and start brushing his teeth very slowly. You should begin at one side and then go to the front of the teeth and then move over to the other side of his mouth. Do this a couple of times and you are done. You should probably do this at least once a day.

Another thing you can do to try and help your dog to have healthy teeth is to get some good doggie treats that are good for their teeth. There are a lot of different dog treats that are specially made to help clean the teeth of your dog. They are not only good for the teeth but your dog is going to love them and it will make brushing his teeth a lot easier.
