How do you know if your dog has a bad tooth?

When a dog is suffering from tooth pain, he may not eat as much as he usually does because it may be hurting him to chew. You may notice him start eating and then abruptly stop. He also may whine when eating or spit out his food.

How can I treat my dogs tooth infection?

"A tooth root abscess is a very painful condition and needs to be treated as soon as possible." There are only two options for treatment of an abscessed tooth. One option is root canal therapy (endodontic treatment), which can preserve the structure of the tooth. The other option is extraction.

Should I brush my dogs teeth?

Like us, it is ideal to brush your dog's teeth at least twice daily. For many dogs, once brushing becomes a part of their daily routine they will begin to expect and enjoy it. Brushing three times a week is the minimum recommendation to help remove plaque and prevent tartar accumulation.

Does coconut oil help clean dogs teeth?

You can maintain your dog's dental health, combat gum disease, and diminish bad breath by brushing their teeth with coconut oil. The lauric acid in coconut oil kills the bacteria that causes tooth decay and stinky breath in your dog's mouth.

What do you do when your dog won't brush their teeth?

If you can get your fingers in your dog's mouth, gels offer a great way to coat the teeth with safe and natural cleaning agents.
