The Dental Kong's grooves gently massage gums, clean teeth and help to reduce plaque.
The large and extra large sizes are bone shaped with hollow interiors designed for holding treats. As dogs try to remove the treats, their teeth and gums are effectively cleaned by the grooves (which can be used with dog toothpaste).
My Old English Sheepdog has a problem with bad breath, placque build-up and constently has a wet mouth and drool. He could use a dental cleaning every 6 months, but that gets very expensive and I don't like having to have him put out for the procedure. I tried the x-large dental kong and it works fine. My biggest problem is finding kong snacks that fit the toy. I end up having to use 2 treats per side in the hole, and they are smaller than the hole. I wish the treats would fit the hole.

This kong is a great size - you can fit a lot into it - but of course with two large holes (instead of just one larger one and one tiny hole like the traditional kong), the dogs are a little faster getting out the goodies. This can hold more food than the XL and L regular kongs.

Kong - XL Dental by Dog Lover from CA04/30/2013
Though I love Kong products, my dog destroyed this in less than 30 days. Having said that, my dog is an 8 month old supper chewer and I haven't found a toy yet that she can not destroy. I'm open to suggestions.
Unbreakable for my aggressive chewer - Pit Bull by Kristine from Pittsburgh, PA10/22/2012
Our dogs goal in life seems to be product testing and seeing how quickly she can destroy a toy. This Kong is great! She actually already has one and has had it for about 9 months and it is still in one piece. I does have damage in the sense that she has been able to bite tiny pieces of the plastic off. We bought two more as spares just in case her current one breaks soon. It's one of her favorite toys. I definitely recommend the extra large for bigger dogs.

The Dental Kong lasted about 1 hour of total time with my Mastif before it ripped apart :-(
