Congratulations on deciding to welcome a new puppy into your Family!
This maybe your first Puppy or a new addition to your Family; maybe its been a while since you have had a puppy in your home.
There's a lot to learn about what to expect and how to handle certain changes in your dog as he ages. Here, we are focusing on the teething process. (Yes, puppies have baby teeth that fall out, just like human babies!)
Please review the stage that your Puppy will go through.
Weeks 2 to 4:
Your Puppy will still be with his mother and breeder when his baby teeth start coming in. At this point, his eyes will have opened, and he'll still be nursing.
Weeks 5 to 6:
Your pup will have baby teeth. Dogs usually have about 28 baby teeth in total. Around this time, the breeder will likely have already or will be in the process of weaning the puppies in the litter as they learn to eat moist, soft puppy food.
Weeks 12 to 16:
This is around the time you'll get to take your Puppy home with you (some breeders let puppies go to their new owners' homes at Eight weeks, but others wait an extra month or so, depending on the breed and the individual breeder's preferences).
Now he is home this is the time you find little teething coming out and start to shed into adult teeth
Anyone who has ever cared for a teething baby knows this process is painful! It would help if you offered your new Puppy safe, natural toys that have been tested for babies and have been used in the market for babies. Our toys have all been tested for the standard of human teething.
A good idea too is to go to the vets to check everything coming through well.
This period is also a significant time for socialization — that is, getting your Puppy used to new experiences in a low-stress situation. There's a lot involved in this process, but since we're on the topic of teeth here, this is a good time to start touching your Puppy's mouth, outside and in. (Be careful that she doesn't bite those remaining puppy teeth are pretty sharp.) By doing this, you'll be setting your Puppy up to be able to enjoy (or at least tolerate) getting his teeth checked or brushed.
6 Months and Older:
All of your puppy teeth should have fallen out, and his adult teeth should have grown in. In general, adults dogs have about 42 teeth, about ten more than people!). If you notice any baby teeth remaining, make sure to let your veterinarian know as they may need to come out.

Dogs don't have the sense to use their tongue to dislodge chewed food from their teeth—that combined with plaque in the mouth can lead to the dog with smelly breaths if the periodontal disease occurs, serious medical problems.
So brush your dog's teeth or give them dog toys that are durable and soft, and there are many teething products.
You would have been training your dog to let you go near his mouth, so begin by brushing toothbrush. But ensure the toothpaste is formulated for dogs, an enzymatic toothpaste will work both mechanically and chemically to destroy plaque.
Human toothpaste isn't designed for dogs might give them a belly upset.
You could use the old fashioned way, which is baking soda and touch of water.
Also, you are as healthy as you eat so ensure you give dogs products with a seal of approval Veterinary Oral Health
