Depending in how many "months old" she is they're probably just her baby teeth. If they are baby teeth they should grow back in but keep in mind that if she's a hairless often they have less teeth than other dogs.

Tooth loss is common in the hairless cresteds. Neither of my boys have a full set of teeth. Vegas seems to be losing his lower front teeth when I blink and Niles has no upper front teeth at all. Both have molars.

Rocky has his bottom and top front teeth, one molar at the back on all four "corners" of his mouth and that's it. the sides of his mouth (both top and bottom) are toothless... Millie's teeth are much better but also is missing some here and there. Rambo has almost all his teeth but he's a very hairy hairless...

mine is a hairy hairless and no visible teeth are gone. at 10 months they should have all permanent teeth already. about 4-6 months this occurs depending on breed and individuals. could be then that her teeth root are very shallow and thus fall out. as others have said this is genetic and common in the hairless variety

Chyna did pretty good for a long time and really just started to lose a large amount of teeth once she turned 12. So now she has buck teeth in the front, I tell her she has bunny teeth. ::D:

Loosing teeth?Sweet Charlie had most if hus teeth and didn't loose baby teeth tell he was pass Est 14 to 15 months. Everyone said to have them pull at one year but I decided to be patient and I'm happy I did..his adult teeth did come in but there's not the same amount as the baby teeth were. Some just didn't come back in. Now that he's 5 yrs old i notice a tooth is starting to fall out from time to time... They look heathy... Also foursome reason he has less hair then when he was young... He's a HHL... Some where I think I read that starting to loose teeth around this age is normal in some dogs...as long as he is healthy I don't worry to much.. In fact I look forward to the day I may see a pink tongue hanging out. LOL

Austin has begun loosing his molars and I can feel that another one is really loose.  He is 8 months now and I think he should have his permanents in by now, maybe I'm wrong.  Either way, those of you whose babies are pretty toothless, are you feeding them mostly soft food?

 

Austin hasn't been eating his food that much, or mostly moving around the hard kibble and eating all the wet.  I'm realizing that it must be because his teeth hurt! =(

AKira lost a canine yesterday- it was a baby one but he doesn't seem to have any adult canines coming through, poor baby. We were playing with this rope -I'm so careful when I play with tugs because I've been worried about the canines- and swung it behind my back to throw and he must have latched on just before I let go. I heard a 'POP' and I knew then what had happened. I feel bad and wish I hadn't picked up the damned rope in the first place now.

If he doesn't show any signs of adult canine teeth now- he'll be nine months old next week - he's unlikely to have them am I right?

Luna Fancy- Mya lost both of her top canines about 2 weeks apart playing BY HERSELF with a toy. I saved the teeth and took her in and found out that at the age of 4 years she still had baby teeth for her top canines and would never get adults. I thought that was crazy. My vet who specializes in canine dentistry highly reccomends no playing tug even with another dog and no chews that dont have just a little flex to them for our hairlesses.
