Maltese Puppy Dental Care
Dental care is a little known yet absolutely necessary component of caring for your Maltese Puppy. By the age of three, some 80 percent of all dogs and 70 percent of all cats show signs of dental disease, which can lead to the more serious problems of heart, lung, and kidney disease. Fido's dog breath and Tabby's tuna breath aren't something to be ignored---they are probably indicative of an oral problem, and the sooner you have it treated by your veterinarian (and learn to care for it yourself), the sooner you and your Maltese Puppy can smile proudly.
The stages and
faces of oral disease
Plaque soon hardens into tartar that forms a wedge separating the tooth from the gum. At this point plaque can grow below the gum line, causing more damage, and professional cleaning is needed to help manage it. If the plaque and tartar buildup continue unchecked, pus can form at the root of the tooth and the tooth becomes impacted. In the final stages of periodontal disease, the tissues surrounding the tooth are killed, the bony socket holding the tooth in erodes, and the tooth falls out. This is a very painful process for your four-legged friend, but the problems can be averted before they even start.

The first step is to determine your Maltese Puppy's current state of mouth cleanliness (see "Identifying dental disease"). A healthy mouth will have clean, smooth, white teeth surrounded by firm, pink gum tissue. Can't stand the smell to get close enough to look?
When your four-legged friend can handle that, try it with a toothbrush specially designed for Maltese Puppies, or a very soft, ultra-sensitive toothbrush designed for people. Gradually add special dog/cat toothpaste (flavored with meat or fish), but never use people toothpaste or baking soda, as both will upset your Maltese Puppy's stomach. The entire process should only take a minute or two. If Fido or Tabby continues to resist, try gently wrapping them in a large bath towel with only the head out. Above all, avoid overstraining and keep sessions short and positive. With plenty of praise and reassurance, your dental sessions can bring the two of you closer--a closeness that won't be marred by the perils of dog breath.
