Day-To-Day Care Of Teeth

September 23, 2019 Off By Crystal Watkins

Yesterday, one of our Yorkshire terriers or Yorkies had a litter of puppies. All went well and she had two girls and two boys. My wife and I always sit with the mamas when they deliver. We help deliver and are there in case of problems. I would like to outline some things you can do to help with the delivery.

No one expects children to be perfect in their teeth brushing and flossing habits. Your dentist certainly understands that children need consistent, adequate training to learn to care for their teeth. However, this is one of those types of habits that does not just “happen.” Your children need to be trained and coached to make sure they are developing good habits and maintaining them.

Another popular method is dental floss skin-tag removal. This applies to skin tags that are attached to the skin with small stalk. Tie very tightly a around the stalk of the affected skin area. Leave it there overnight or longer, if necessary. Similar to the nail polish, it cut off the problem from the blood and oxygen supply and dries out. When the condition seems to be completely dried out, simply take a pair of scissors and cut the dried skin off.

There are many benefits to brushing and flossing your teeth. First and foremost, you can help prevent tooth decay by this practice. Brushing and flossing also prevent gum disease, which is a primary agent in decaying and lost teeth.

Puppies will need two important things once out: food and heat. Do not wait for them to develop complications by not giving in to their most basic needs. Check the pup’s body temperature which should be 97F to 100F for the succeeding weeks and note that there should be weight gain. Dams may refuse to let the pups breastfeed so milk supplement should be within reach.

Keeping the mother’s size in mind, a box with no bottom, constructed with 4 equal pieces of 1″x12″ lumber is best for the mother and her babies to lay in for the first 3 or 4 weeks. For a Yorkie, I construct the box about 28 inches square. For larger breeds, resize accordingly. Sand away any rough edges that could cause injuries. Just place a couple of layers of old towels on the floor and set the box over it. Just use larger towels, and you will see that the box uses its own weight to pin the towels down. Easy to keep clean, and the setup keeps the puppies from getting tangled around the puppies. We use disposable medical pads as a top layer over the towels. Easy to maintain.

Like many people, I enjoy a good hot cup of tea. Over the years, I have experimented with different blends and different ways to achieve a specific flavor. Not always being able to find a pleasing blend, I started growing my own herbs, for herbal teas and making my own tea bags. Making your own tea bags can be simple, requiring no sewing or a few stitches can be added to make them more attractive.

A lot has been researched and written about dental health online. With just a few clicks, you would be able to find a ton of information on the different ways to ensure dental care. What remains to be seen is whether you take action after reading the same or not!
