Facts About Dog Teething

Why do dogs teethe?

Dogs, similar to us humans, begin growing teeth while we begin stopping off a mother’s milk and shifting to hard foods. What’s problematic is that adult teeth are too huge for our jaws at this age. Hence, baby teeth starts to come in until a puppy or a child’s jaw becomes bigger. Also, our baby teeth serves as a guide as to how the adult teeth properly come in. This is the reason why we have huge gaps between our teeth before our adult teeth come in. The adult teeth grow in those particular spaces, so as your puppy.

 

General timeline of when the teeth of your puppy starts to come in.

Baby Teeth

  • 2 up to 3 weeks: The incisors of your puppy starts to come in.
  • 3 up to 5 weeks: Four canines starts to emerge.
  • 5 up to 6 weeks: The premolars of your puppy shows.

By week 8, a full-set baby teeth have already emerged.

Adult Teeth

  • 12 up to 16 weeks: The adult incisors begin to come in and the canines starts to show up at this moment also.
  • 16 up to 20 weeks: The premolars of your dog begin to come in.
  • 16 up to 24 weeks: The molars of your dog emerge.

By 5 up 6 months of age, the entire adult teeth of your puppy should have come in.s

 

Keeping your dog’s teeth healthy.

You must brush your dog’s teeth also similar to flossing and brushing your own teeth. Although cavities can rarely be seen in dogs, it does not mean that they won’t or can’t have dental problems.
