 How to can I brush my KD’s teeth?

Hi Every one!
I’m the new guy here, I would love to tell you about my KD, his name is Kenny. I’ve had him for two years now, the last time I measured him he was 39ft 11 and 7/8 in. long. The other day Kenny and I were out side and we saw the neighbor Danny brushing his dogs teeth. This got me to thinking, I’ve never brushed Kenny’s teeth. So, I asked Danny to show me the proper way to brush Kenny’s teeth. Danny agreed and came over to my yard with a tooth brush, man, we tried everything to get Kenny to open up! Nothing! After a while Danny had a good idea. Danny said try tickling him and see if he will open up. So, I started to tickle Kenny on the soft parts of his belly, you know just in front of this rear legs, Kenny must be ticklish because Danny said Kenny’s mouth is WIDE OPEN NOW! Kenny must be really ticklish because he just thrashed around until I stopped ticking him. I turned around to check Danny’s progress, just like Danny, he left the tooth brush on the ground and left? I’ll just return the tooth brush when Danny turns up? So, I thought about asking the Alpaca farmer next door to give me a hand with Kenny’s teeth , but , I’ve noticed in the last two years his heard of Alpacas has thinned out a lot? The economy is just terrible! He must be slowly selling of his Alpaca herd to get by? Poor guy. So, Kenny and I decided to just go over to the farmers pasture fence and watch the Alpacas run to the far end of the pasture as we approached. Kenny loves watching the Alpacas, I can see in his eyes that warm, fuzzy feeling he gets inside when we watch the alpacas. I’m starting to think Kenny has a gland problem? I feed him a low fat diet but he has gained a LOT of weight? Kenny enjoys going for long walks in the woods and playing with the wild raccoons and opossums. I think the wild animals are all going into an early hibernation this year? I haven’t even seen a deer come to think of it? I didn’t think deer hibernated? O Man, I haven’t even seen a stray in a couple years! I’m going to have to go buy a play mate for Kenny. Anyone have any ideas?

Brushing a Komodo Dragon’s teeth with a conventional brush is extremely dangerous, due to their extremely small teeth and sensitive gums. That’s why we have water fluoridation. Back when baby Komodo Dragons were commonly sold in dime stores, it was quite common for brushing-related injuries to take place, so in order to protect their mouths J. Edgar Hoover demanded that all tap water contain fluorine so you can just spray his teeth out with a high-powered firehose. This is, however, no substitute for flossing. I usually find one of the neighborhood children and pay them a nickel to floss my dragon’s teeth; it must be enough money, since apparently they retire afterwards. I always leave while they’re in the middle of it and then I never see them again...

Sorry, Kenny is using the camera now to take photos of the Alpaca’s next door and hanging the picture’s on his hide out walls. I can’t say I own a full blooded KD because Kenny’s only 1/2 KD, his Daddy was a house gecko.
