1. Brush the teeth of the teacup poodle regularly

Brushing your dog’s teeth every day helps prevent dental disease, gingivitis, and periodontitis. Gingivitis is reversible. Periodontal disease is irreversible and can cause heart, liver, and kidney damage. We should form the habit of checking the teacup and brushing the dog’s mouth every day. We want to choose a convenient time to be part of your poodle’s daily life.

2. Choose the right brushing tools

When brushing your teeth, use a soft pet toothbrush and dog toothpaste. Human toothpaste is not used for swallowing and can cause stomach discomfort. Toothpaste made for dogs has different flavors and is more attractive to your dog. Canine toothpaste is an enzyme preparation, so when it comes to the teeth, it works – brushing is less important than humans.

When you first introduce your teacup poodle to brush her teeth, try the taste of toothpaste on your fingers. Next time, try it and move your fingers along the gum line of the upper tooth. Repeat the process with a toothbrush. If your poodle doesn’t let you brush your teeth, focus on the outside of the back upper teeth. This is the most important area of periodontal disease prevention. At some point, your poodle needs professional cleaning by a veterinarian. A toy poodle requires a veterinary dental examination twice a year and a standard poodle once a year.
