When Do Maltipoo Lose Their Teeth

Table of Contents

Do you ever wonder when your Maltipoo will start to lose its baby teeth and get those adorable adult teeth? The process of teething is never quite easy—especially if it’s a breed that tends to control behavior like the Maltipoo. But, don’t worry!

At what age do Maltipoos start losing their baby teeth?

Maltipoos may be some of the cutest puppies, but they need to go through that inevitable puppy stage where they are losing their baby teeth! Generally, it is around 5-6 months when a Maltipoo starts to lose its baby teeth. 

For some pups, all of the baby teeth will be gone by 7 months while others can take up to a full year for them all to fall out. During this time, it’s important to keep an eye on the little one and make sure no loose teeth are ingested and replaced with fresh ones from the vet. 

But don’t worry too much: teething pain is usually minimal compared to the teething of human babies, so your pup should remain as rambunctious and carefree as ever!

How many teeth does Maltipoos have?

It’s no wonder people love Maltipoos – these happy-go-lucky dogs are a mix of a Maltese and a toy or miniature Poodle, combining their best traits. As for how many teeth they have, it depends on their age as puppies will have a different set of teeth than an adult. 

Generally, a puppy can come into the world with 28 teeth which then add up as they grow older, each dog has around 42 teeth when properly grown. The exact number may change from one Maltipoo to another but the average remains similar, with canines famously having ‘42 pearly whites’!

What should I do if my Maltipoo loses a tooth?

If your Maltipoo loses a tooth, there’s no need to panic–it is a relatively common occurrence that can happen for a variety of reasons. The best course of action is to take them in for a checkup with the vet. 

This will give you an idea of how long it takes for adult teeth to come in, and if any other problems exist that caused the tooth loss. In addition, make sure that dental care is part of your dog’s routine so future issues can be prevented. Be sure to inquire with the vet about food that could help support their dental health as well!

Can Maltipoos experience pain while teething?

Maltipoos, a crossbreed of Maltese and Poodles, is an adorable companion for any loyal pet owner. However, with their teething period comes the question of whether they can experience pain with this process. 

Just like human toddlers, Maltipoos can be very uncomfortable and cry out when teething. As the baby’s teeth fall out, it is normal for them to display signs of discomfort as the adult teeth push through. 

To minimize discomfort during this stage, it’s important to provide cool chew items to provide relief from sore gums! Keeping your pet entertained with interactive toys designed for their age is also helpful in distracting them from the pain associated with teething. Plus, it makes for great playtime!

Maltipoos start to lose their baby teeth around 5-6 months and have 42 adult teeth when they are fully grown. If a tooth is lost or there are signs of discomfort during teething, it is best to take them in for a checkup with the vet. With proper care and attention, you can help your pup feel more comfortable throughout this process.

How can I help my teething Maltipoo?

Helping a teething Maltipoo can be difficult, but it’s an important part of this breed’s development. Giving your pup chew toys and bones to help them ease the pain of their developing teeth will go a long way toward making the experience more comfortable. 

Make sure to get safe and age-appropriate chewing options for your pet, as some toys may be too tough or small for them. Similarly, providing cold compresses or ice wrapped in cloth may help grant relief to your Maltipoo. 

Keep in mind that the teething process can last anywhere from three to six months, so make sure you have enough supplies available and remain consistent with providing comfort and relief! 

The teething process for a Maltipoo can be daunting but is necessary for their development. With proper care and attention, your pup will make it through with minimal discomfort and you can enjoy watching them grow up into a mature adult dog!

Should I give my Maltipoo any special dental care during teething?

If you are the proud owner of a Maltipoo, you may be wondering if special dental care is necessary during the teething stage. The short answer is yes! Just as human babies need extra attention during this period, so too do puppies. 

Regular tooth brushing with a puppy-formulated toothpaste is recommended, as is providing appropriate chew toys to help alleviate gum pain that may occur. It’s important to note that if your pup shows any signs of having difficulty eating or seems lethargic, it’s time to see a vet to rule out any potential dental issues or infections. 

Taking good care of their teeth now will ensure that your Maltipoo has a healthy and happy smile for years to come! Overall, teething for a Maltipoo is an important part of their development and it’s important to offer your pup the necessary comfort during this time. With the right supplies and dental care, you can help make sure that your Maltipoo has strong, healthy adult teeth that will last them a lifetime!


Maltipoo puppies are precociously adorable, and all the more so when they are teething due to their natural cuteness. As they grow, they will lose their puppy teeth much like any other breed of dog; however, there is no precise timeline for when this happens. Generally, they start losing them at six months of age and finish doing so by eight or nine months. It is also important to pay attention and monitor the changes your pet goes through during this period, as it can indicate whether your Maltipoo pup is developing under proper health conditions.
