Pomeranian puppies have 28 milk teeth. And the puppies start to lose their milk teeth and grow a permanent set of teeth between 3 and 7 months. Adult Pomeranians have 42 permanent teeth.

Types of Pomeranian Teeth

Four types of teeth can be found in Pomeranians: incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. These various types of teeth help the dog bite, chew, and grind food.


Scraping is accomplished by using incisors because their shape allows them to grind flesh from bones. The teeth are located in front of the Pomeranian’s mouth.


Canine is used to breaking food into pieces, such as meat. These teeth, which are frontal ones which, are the longest.


Pomeranians use their premolars to chew their foods and break them up. Canines will soon follow premolars.


The molar is used to break down any hard meals your Pomeranian has to chew. The teeth are in the rear of the mouth of a Pomeranian.

Pomeranian Teething Period

Pomeranian Teething

Pomeranian teething can be a difficult and painful process for your puppy. It is possible to ease Pomeranian teething by giving them solid food to chew on.

Hard, crunchy foods massage their gums and reduce inflammation. Puppy kibble or biscuits are ideal options. Just make sure they’re small enough to avoid choking hazards.

Let them chew on ice chips or frozen wet towels to numb the pain and swelling associated with teething puppies.

Be prepared for increased biting during this period as well! While it’s important not to encourage biting behavior, have plenty of toys on hand that they can gnaw on without damaging furniture or injuring themselves.

How to Determine Your Pomeranians Age By Its Teeth

To determine your Pomeranian’s age by its teeth, look at the puppy’s teeth. If the puppy already has all of its permanent teeth, it is probably more than seven months old.

To determine your Pomeranian’s age by its teeth, look at the number and condition of its adult teeth. If all adult teeth are present and in good condition, then your Pomeranian is probably between 1 and 2 years old.

If some adult teeth are missing or damaged, then your Pomeranian is likely older than two years.

Common Dental Problems in Pomeranians

Pomeranian dental problems are quite common. Many owners report that their dog’s teeth become yellow or discoloured over time, and some even experience tooth loss.

Brushing your Pomeranian’s teeth regularly can help to prevent these issues; it is important to be aware of the potential for dental problems so you can take steps to avoid them.

Gum Disease in Pomeranians

Gum Disease is a common problem in small breeds like the Pomeranian. It occurs when plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth, causing inflammation of the gums. Left untreated can lead to tooth loss and other serious health problems.

Tooth Decay in Pomeranians

Tooth Decay happens when acids from food and bacteria attack the tooth enamel, causing it to break down. Once decay starts, it can quickly progress to require a root canal or even extraction if not treated early enough.

Crowding in Pomeranians

Because they have such small mouths, Pomeranians are prone to overcrowding which can cause dental problems later on in life if not addressed early enough with braces or another form of treatment by an orthodontist.

Misaligned Jaws in Pomeranians

Misaligned Jaws is a congenital condition that some Pomeranians are born with where their top and bottom jaws don’t line up correctly. It can cause difficulty eating and chewing, as well as an increased risk for gum disease and tooth decay.

To prevent these problems, it is important to brush your Pomeranian’s teeth regularly with a toothbrush with dog-safe toothpaste. You should also have their teeth checked by a veterinarian at least once a year so that any problems can be caught early and treated accordingly.

How to treat bad pomeranian teeth

If your Pomeranian has bad teeth, you can do a few things to help them out.


It’s important to start brushing your dog’s teeth at an early age so that they get used to the process and it becomes part of their regular routine. You can use special doggy toothpaste or even dissolve some baking soda in water to create a paste. Be sure to brush gently all around the gum line and avoid using human toothpaste, as this can be toxic for dogs.


Spritzing Dog Dental Spray onto their favorite chew toys or bones will help freshen their breath while also cleaning their teeth! These sprays usually contain enzymes that break down plaque and tartar, plus other ingredients like aloe vera gel to soothe inflamed gums.

Simply spritz it onto whatever toy or bone your pup is currently gnawing on and let them do their business. You’ll notice an improvement in breath quality and teeth health over time.

Dental chews

Dental chews are specially formulated to help reduce plaque buildup on your dog’s teeth while freshening their breath. Look for brands that contain natural ingredients like chlorophyll or mint oil, which can help fight bad bacteria in the mouth.

Give them one or two chew toys per day, depending on their size – but make sure they’re supervised while chewing since some pieces could break off and pose a choking hazard.

Meet Your Vet

Attending regular professional veterinarian cleanings is the best way to ensure that your dog’s mouth stays in tip-top shape! Like humans, dogs need professional dental care to remove tartar or calculus buildup that brushing at home can’t handle.

Your vet can also check for gum disease or other oral health problems during these appointments.

Be sure to schedule a cleaning at least once a year– more often if your dog is particularly prone to plaque buildup or has existing dental issues.

Pomeranian Teeth Cleaning Cost

Pomeranian teeth cleaning can cost around $100 to $600, depending on the severity of the dog’s dental problems. The cost of dog teeth cleaning can vary depending on the severity of the buildup and whether your pup needs X-rays or anesthesia. A professional tooth scaling will remove tartar and plaque, while tooth polish can help with stains and discoloration.

When Pomeranians need their teeth cleaned, vets use anesthesia so that the Pom does not feel any pain during the procedure. The vet will carefully monitor your Pomeranians’ heart rate and breathing while under anesthesia.

How to Brush/ Clean Pomeranian Teeth Yourself

Brushing a Pomeranian's Teeth

First, you’ll need to gather supplies. You’ll need doggie toothpaste, a child’s soft toothbrush (or a finger brush), and patience!

To start, get your pup used to having something in its mouth by letting them lick the taste of the toothpaste off your finger. Once they’re okay with that, put some paste on the bristles of the brush (not too much!) And let them give it a good chew. It might take a few tries for them to get used to this new sensation.

Now comes the tricky part: actually brushing their teeth! The best way to do this is to lift up their lips and gently scrub away at those pearly whites in circular motions.

Be sure to focus on all sides of each individual tooth – don’t forget those back molars! Finish up by giving their tongue a little brush as well; bacteria can build up there too.

Be careful not to put too much pressure on their delicate gums! Once you’ve gone over all of their teeth, give them a little treat as a reward for being such a good pup.

Pomeranian Double Teeth

Double teeth are when they have two rows of teeth instead of just one. This is caused by the milk teeth not falling out after the permanent ones have come in. It’s a rare dental problem in Pomeranians.

If your Pomeranian has double teeth (two sets of teeth raws), you need to visit the veterinary dentist.

Pomeranian Losing/ Falling Out Permanent teeth

During puppyhood, their milk teeth will naturally fall out. It’s completely normal. However, if the permanent teeth are falling out, it’s a serious problem. It is possible that your Pomeranian’s permanent teeth for several reasons.

Make sure your Pomeranian gets a dental checkup if they are losing adult teeth.

Pomeranian Tooth Extraction/ Removal

A dog tooth extraction/ removal is a fairly common procedure. It involves removing one or more teeth from your dog’s mouth. This should only be done when your Pomeranian’s dentist recommends doing so, and there are no other alternatives. Your Pomeranian’s dentist better has a good reason to do so.

The following are the most common causes why dentists recommend a tooth extraction.

  • Your Pomeranian has severe tartar buildup, and the tooth can’t be saved.
  • The tooth is so damaged that it can’t be repaired.
  • The tooth is infected and causing pain or other problems.


Pomeranian teeth are important for their overall health, but they can be susceptible to dental problems. Brush your Pomeranian’s teeth regularly with a toothbrush and dog-safe toothpaste to prevent these issues.

You should also have their teeth checked by a veterinarian at least once a year so that any problems can be caught early and treated accordingly.
