The type of the breed determines when the milk teeth fall away. Because of rapid growth and their smaller size, Pomeranians lose teeth earlier than larger breeds. 

Adult Pomeranian will have 42 teeth. And 20 of them are in the top jaw and 22 of them are in the bottom jaw. Moreover, puppy teeth are replaced by adult canine teeth. These include the molars around four months old; however, this can vary from puppy to puppy.

Check out the chart for the dental health of the Pomeranian to find out how the 42 teeth are placed.

Losing Teeth in Older Pomeranians 

Since Pomeranians are a smaller dog breed with rapid growth, it’s common to see falling teeth in some of the older dogs. However, if you’re seeing more than 2 teeth fall within a few days, it can be a sign of a big problem. 

This can happen because of two reasons. 

  1. Dental trauma
  2. Periodontal illness

In such cases, you need to meet your vet as soon as possible.

How to Take Care of Pomeranian Teeth?

Brush Your Pomeraninss’ Teeth

Make sure you brush your teeth with the special toothbrush designed for Pomeranians. Since Pomeranians are smaller in size, it’s not recommended to use normal human toothbrushes. Because those are not designed for their mouth and can hurt them.

Human toothpaste also shouldn’t be given to Pomeranians. Fluoride poisoning has been a problem for them. There are a few kinds of toothpaste that are specially designed for puppies that are completely safe. 

Moreover, there is puppy toothpaste with meat flavors such as chicken and beef. If you’re Pom is resisting brushing teeth, they will probably like flavored toothpaste. 

Dental Chews and Treats
