If you were a kid growing up in America there is probably a pretty good chance you or someone you knew owned a pet hamster as a kid. I know I had a couple pet hamsters and they were the perfect pets for a young child. They are pretty easy to care for, they teach kids about taking responsibility and they are just all around pretty fun to play with and watch.

These little mammals have become one of the most popular pets in the country and it is easy to see why. Not to mention the classic hamster ball, where your hamster gets inside a clear plastic ball and is able to run around the whole house or apartment safely while getting his much needed exercise and being super entertaining at the same time.

One thing however, that most people aren’t aware of is that hamster teeth continue to grow for their entire life. So if your hamster gets to a ripe old age there’s a good chance at some point you will have to chisel down those big sharp teeth so they will be able to eat comfortably and live a normal healthy hamster life into old age.

Hamsters tend to be pets for children, however one guy loved hamsters so much that he always had one as a pet all the way into adulthood. Because he was so familiar with hamsters and had been interfacing with them for so many years, he became pretty good at chiseling down their teeth once they became too overgrown. In fact this guy was so good at being a hamster dentist he decided to do a DIY hamster tutorial teeth chisel video to teach others how to simply do it on their own so that their pet hamsters wouldn’t suffer with overgrown sharp teeth!

So this guy got his camera set up for the DIY video, got everything prepped for the tutorial and finally picked up his hamster cute little hamster and was ready to begin to teach the world the proper way to chip and chisel away their overgrown teeth so that they could live comfortably in their habitats. He held the adorable little guy in a comfortable position and gently began to get the hamster to open his mouth wide enough that the camera could pick up his overgrown teeth so that he could teach the world the proper technique.

After a little bit of a struggle the adorable little guy finally widen his mouth enough that it was visible in the video and he noted that for this particular tutorial he would only have chip and chisel away the lower incisors because they were super overgrown, while his top teeth were the right length and looked to be in good shape. This wasn’t the hamsters first dental rodeo as his human had chiseled down his teeth plenty of times before without a problem.

For some reason this time, of course because there was a camera, he was having more trouble than usual having the lil’ mammal keep his mouth open. Nonetheless, after a bit of effort he was able to successfully trim the first lower tooth and everything seemed fine.

As he went for lower tooth number 2 the hamster closed his mouth with a vice grip and it seemed like he wasn’t going to let his human trim tooth number 2. He was concerned because the hamster had never been this way before and had always been a phenomenal little dental patient.

That’s when he noticed the little creature stopped wiggling around, froze his body up like a statue and then he began to notice something moving around inside his mouth from cheek to cheek…..

A Bright Red tongue, over a period of time and not related to a red food you have eaten, can be indicative of a Deficiency of Vitamin B complex and Iron.  It may also show a sensitivity or allergy to a particular toothpaste, medicine or acidic food.

As bad as it looks, dark coloration or Black Hairy Tongue, is not dangerous.  It is a sign of very poor dental hygiene, that results in an overgrowth of tongue papillae (“hair”) that traps bacteria.  As disgusting as it looks, it is easily remedied by improving dental hygiene.

A White or Powdery looking tongue means the same thing as Black or Yellow Tongue; bacteria stuck in dense tongue hair due to poor oral hygiene.  The causes may be the same as well: dry mouth, smoking, or a yeast infection which can come from antibiotics, all contribute to the tongue’s ability to fight bacteria that get stuck in the papillae.

A Pale or Yellow Tongue may also indicate low hemoglobin or problems in the lungs or colon.  This symptom should be checked by a physician.

Small Cracks are usually a sign of aging, while White Patches are mouth irritations that often appear on the bottom of the tongue.  More commonly found in smokers, these lesions should be checked by an oral surgeon, who will determine if biopsy is indicated to rule out cancer.  It is better to be safe than sorry.

Small Red Lumps should be examined immediately, as they could be indicative of oral cancer.  You shouldn’t think twice about seeing an oral surgeon for biopsy.

Painful sores in the mouth are usually a stress reaction that are very painful. They will often disappear with reduction of stress, but if they don’t, or if they keep coming back, you should have a professional evaluate them.
