When cats lose their milk teeth

You've brought a kitten into your life and want to do everything you can to ensure its healthy development? Then follow our blog post today to find out everything you need to know.

An important aspect of long-term cat health is dental care. After all, your cat's milk teeth will eventually fall out and it's important to keep dental care in line with this. But when do kittens actually lose their milk teeth and what should you keep in mind?


How kittens lose their milk teeth

Kittens get their first milk teeth already at the age of about 2-3 weeks. They usually fall out between the 3rd and 6th month. Similar to dogs, the milk teeth have a fundamental influence on the development of the jaws and dentition of cats.

You should adjust your cat's dental care to the individual change of teeth. This way you can avoid dental diseases and prevent serious diseases associated with them.

There are special treats and chews that help clean and strengthen your cat's baby teeth. Alternatively, we recommend starting dental care early with our emmi®-pet ultrasonic toothbrush.

It is particularly suitable for small kittens, as it does not damage or deform the milk teeth, which are still quite soft. You can brush your little cat's teeth in a very relaxed way without any pressure and thus get her used to regular dental care.


How to help your cat with teething

It is important, however, that despite regular dental care, you also check your kitten's teeth regularly. After all, it is not impossible that malocclusions or malformations can lead to massive problems in the jaw.

If you start regular dental care when your kitten is young, you can get your cat used to daily dental care in a very relaxed way. Regularly looking into your cat's mouth and touching her teeth can also be important for later dental check-ups.

In summary, your cat's baby teeth will eventually fall out. In most cases, this happens without complications and within the average time indicated.
