How to Brush Your Dog's Teeth Properly

According to veterinarians, it's important that you take care of your dog's teeth regularly. Inadequate dental care may not only lead to bad breath but also cause gingivitis or tartar. To protect the teeth, a good dental care routine is important!

The fact that you are reading this article shows you really care about your dog's health and are interested in proper dental care. Read on to find out why regular dental care is necessary for your dog and how you can prevent tartar development.

Dental care is not only important for humans, but for dogs too. Just like humans, dogs can also develop tooth problems. The most common dental problems in dogs are gingivitis, strong halitosis (bad breath) and tartar.

For example, in Germany alone, about 80% of all dogs over the age of 3 suffer from dental problems such as tooth decay, tartar and gingivitis.

But luckily it doesn't always have to be this way! With the right dental care, you can help your dog build healthy and strong teeth and avoid tartar build-up.

But how do you care for your dog's teeth properly?

Exactly this question is asked by millions of dog owners all over the world. And with so many dental care products available on the market, it can be really tricky to decide.

The thing is, every dog is different and needs a different kind of tooth care. For example, not every dog likes having their teeth brushed. And not every dog likes to bite on chew toys.

That's why it's so important to choose an appropriate dental care option that your dog will really use and benefit from.

What happens if I don't look after my dog's teeth?

Inadequate dental care can lead to serious consequences for your dog. Unlike us humans, dogs don't chew their food thoroughly, but tear it up.. 

This leads to an increased amount of food debris accumulating between your dog's teeth. This build-up is a paradise for bacteria and can lead to gingivitis and halitosis.

If you don't keep your dog's teeth clean regularly, plaque on the teeth and in between the teeth can harden and become tartar.

Unfortunately, in the case of severe tartar build-up, no amount of dental care will do any good. Stubborn tartar can only be removed by a vet via manual tooth cleaning under anaesthesia.

To prevent this from happening, it's important you regularly check and take care of your dog's teeth.

How do I properly care for my dog's teeth?

To get rid of existing plaque and to prevent problems with gingivitis, halitosis and tartar, it's essential you practise regular, long-term dental care for your dog, as this is the only way to build healthy teeth and prevent disease.

At mammaly®, we've made it our mission to support your dog's health by developing functional dog treats that can help your dog remove existing plaque on their teeth, alleviate gingivitis and prevent tartar build-up.

Developed with veterinarians, Fresh Smile dog treats contain powerful active ingredients from nature, which can slowly help your dog to reduce gingivitis and build strong teeth from the inside out.

Unlike chemical dental care products, there may not be a complete change immediately. So to get the best results from mammaly's Fresh Smile dog treats, we recommend using the snacks on a regular basis over a long period of time.

How do Fresh Smile snacks clean my dog's teeth?

Fresh Smile dog treats by mammaly® are an important aid in your dog's daily dental care. Not only are they incredibly easy to use, but they can also help your dog develop healthy teeth and prevent bad breath.

They can also help your dog prevent tartar build-up by naturally removing any light plaque on their teeth. The effectiveness of our dog treats is down to their unique composition.

Let's take a closer look at our Fresh Smile dog treats' super powers:

Sodium tripolyphosphate and zinc sulphate bind the calcium in saliva. This inhibits the growth of further calcium crystals, keeping plaque soft for longer, so that it can be more effectively removed during chewing.

Peppermint ensures fresh breath. It contains essential oils and chlorophylls, which fight unpleasant odours and actively reduce bad breath.

Vitamin E has an antioxidant effect and cannot be produced by dogs themselves. Ginger and rosemary have anti-inflammatory properties, protecting gums and preventing gingivitis.

Our combination of probiotic bacteria strains (good intestinal bacteria) and prebiotics (food for the bacteria) include beta-glucan & inulin to strengthen the intestinal flora. Carrot, beetroot, celery, courgette and pumpkin also provide important fibre for regulated digestion.

This product is incredible. We have two Chihuahua of the age of 14 and the teeth cleaning procedure is no option for us because of the risk. I was skeptical, because we tried so many things already. Now I am a real fan of this product after just 4 weeks. I just wish that I had discovered it earlier. It smells really good and my dogs come running when they hear me opening the can. Their breath smells better now and I can see their teeth getting brighter and brighter each day. Sadly, I forgot to make a before-and-after picture... Thank you so much mammaly! Best regards, balou, belgi, mannfred & betti

I am using this product for 6 weeks now and could definitely see  that my Yorky´s teeth got brighter and that there is less plaque. I did not expect that his teeth would change over night: that would have been unrealistic. It is good to know that Fresh Smile is keeping the mouth healthy. I can´t tell you what it tastes like but my dog eats it without hesitation. We are looking forward to seeing more results in the future.

I bought it because both of my dogs have really bad breath and tartar. Both are elderly dogs so I was a bit hesitant but before going into another veterinary intervention I thought I might give it a try! And... it works really well, their breath is 100% better now. I also think that the tartar problem improved as well. I recommend Fresh Smile.

Experience it for yourself and discover the benefits of Fresh Smile first hand!
