Hello! - I'm sorry to hear that your 8-year old is losing teeth. Dogs' teeth are similar to people's in what keeps them healthy - that is, a healthy diet and regular brushing. There is no other magic formula we can take to repair our teeth one damage has occured - and neither is there for dogs. Flatter faced breeds can often struggle if their teeth do not all fit into the space available (they have the same number of teeth, no matter how long the nose is), so some breeds can have a particularly hard time. Right now, it sounds as though your vet needs to do a dental check-up and possibly even work - preventative and / or restorative - on the remaining mouth, so its well worth making an appointment for a dental assessment.
