I have been brushing Tyler's teeth, faithfully, daily since he was a puppy. He is now just a week shy of 17 and his teeth are great. He has only had to have them cleaned once at about 10 yrs. When the vet saw him in January, she stated that he has the teeth of a 4 yr old. I use a long handled dog toothbrush which has a small head on one end and a large on the other. For his small mouth I, of course, use the small end. I hold up his top gum, put the brush way back, on the outside only, and brush away. I do it only for a couple of seconds each day and it works. He loves it too, so that makes it a lot easier. Now that Brody's teeth have been professionally cleaned, it should be easy to keep up with them, if he's cooperative. Good luck.
