We’ve compiled a puppy teething timeline so you know exactly what to expect as your furry friend grows into his adult body.

What problems are caused by persistent deciduous teeth?

The crowding that results from the persistent tooth and its permanent counterpart will increase the likelihood that food and debris will become trapped between the teeth. An increased tendency to accumulate food debris and plaque can lead to problems such as tartar deposits, gingivitis, and ultimately periodontitis. Additionally, if there is traumatic contact of teeth with other teeth or with the oral soft tissues there will be pain and infection. Teeth contacting other teeth inappropriately can lead to abnormal wear and weakening of the teeth with subsequent tooth (or teeth) fracture.

Occasionally, a persistent deciduous tooth can cause a dental interlock which may interfere with the normal growth and development of the jaws.

If the persistent deciduous tooth is a lower canine, the permanent lower canine is forced to erupt on the inside of the persistent deciduous tooth and as the permanent tooth erupts it will contact the roof of the mouth causing pain and damage which makes it difficult for your dog to eat.

Let’s find out all about how a dog’s teeth grow, what happens during puppy teething, when dogs stop teething and what you can do to avoid getting bitten and inadvertently teaching your dog a bad behavior as your puppy teethes.
