If your dog has tartar and things are bad enough she is loosing teeth, she needs to see a vet for a cleaning. All that nasty gunk can enter the bloodstream and shorten your dog's life.

I have had dogs loose a couple of teeth over the years due to accident. I don't normally brush but inspect, offer enough chew things to clean the teeth and occasionally have them cleaned.
