Massimo had the same problem at 8 months, so I made an apt. at the vet. He said that Maltese could lose teeth up to 10 months....I was worried it was causing him pain, he wasn't eating normally, and he spent his days chewing the edible nylabone. Well, at 10 months the last of his retained baby teeth finally fell out. The vet said if they didn't he would pull them because they would cause pain because the rest of his adult teeth would keep growing and put pressure on his teeth and jaw casusing painful crowding. I also noticed his tear staining had lightened up a LOT after his baby teeth fell out. I also noticed it was a lot less painful for ME to play with him after they fell out (his baby teeth were SHARP!!)
