What makes you think he has tooth decay? Have you taken him to a vet?

Where are you located?

You can find a vet that deals with gliders by choosing your location from there. Other than that, I'm sorry, I don't know what is wrong with your glider.

Most gliders don't need it, so they don't make one for them. I have one currently in the process of losing all of her teeth-14 so far. What is your diet? That could explain why they may have decay. Here's the vet that is currently taking care of my Lyah's teeth-she will consult with another vet:

Dr. Laurel Harris
2675 Parley's Way
Salt Lake City, UT 84109
(801) 485-4736

Branches aren't sufficient alone to prevent decay, if diet is high in sugar (they can't get in between for instance). Some diets include mealworms for that purpose.

A vet will need to put the glider under anesthesia to find out exactly what's going on, and make a determination as to whether to remove the teeth or not, or even to sufficiently clean them. I wish I could tell you you could do it yourself, but you can't. If there's decay in there, it can also lead to infection and abscesses in the mouth/face, and eventually can even kill the glider if not taken care of. Chris (glidrz5) and I are the only one's I know of to deal with tooth issues on a large scale-either of us are more than happy to help as we can.

You're also welcome to have yoru vet contact mine....
Dr Drew Kaiser
Katherine Road Animal Hospital
217-228-1982
He has delt with both my Sassy & my Nicky throughout their dental issues. I am sure that he would be willing to pass on what he learned from them.
To help with my other gliders to improve their dental health, he has me using a antibacterial oral rinse to brush their teeth....Chlorohexidine (I believe that is it). I will dip a Q-Tip into the rinse & then gently brush their teeth with it to remove any food build up. You can also put it into a syringe & squirt it into the gliders mouth & then let them shake their heads to spit it out (kinda like glider gargling) You may want to ask your vet about it.
