I don't think she is in much pain but you can wet a tea towel- tie it in a knot and then freeze it for her to chew on- or freeze some flavoured ice cubes for her to lick- but she is probably fine. It dones't hurt to brush her teeth when she is teething.

She should be fine unless she seems to be in pain, she probably isn't. It's very natural. Yes, you should be brushing her teeth as often as you can, and at least once a day if possible. Do NOT use human toothpaste, but you can buy doggie toothpaste at most stores. I don't like the doggie toothbrushes (too big). I use either a toddler toothbrush (for humans) or a toothbrush for kittens.
Things to watch out for....
-she will chew everything! Watch out for wires and anything that falls on the floor. They turn into Yorkie vacuum cleaners! lol!
-don't let a little blood throw you. You might see it on toys, etc...
-don't let her start using your fingers or toes as chew toys. It is a HARD habit to break once they start. It's cute at first, but uh oh later.
-clear deodorant works well to keep her from chewing things (reapply daily)
Things to help....
-ice! Some yorkies love to chew ice cubes. It also helps their gums feel better. Gizmo and Kandi liked chewing on frozen wash cloths. I also froze chicken broth. That's fun.
-Kong chew toys are great! Peanut butter works well.
That's all I can think of for now. Hey, are you saving them? I have to admit that I saved a few. LOL!

She needs a lot of hard stuff to chew on. Bully sticks are good and she probably likes them better than table feet, couch corners or carpets...
