My dog keeps licking and pawing at his face

My boyfriend took my dogs to the park yesterday and when they came home i noticed that Rambo kept licking his lips and started pawing at his face. I looked in his mouth this morning and didn't see anything. His teeth are a little brown so i wasn't sure if they are starting to bother him. He is only a year and a half so is it possible that his teeth are already going bad (he is a pain in the you know what to brush them)? Any suggestions on what else it could be?

I don't know what he was chewing on but he has something stuck in his teeth or mouth. Inspect it further so you can manually remove whatever it is.
Rambo needs a toothpick, don't you baby?
Wow, I took a closer look at his photos. He reminds me of my Pit, Woofie. She has been gone 8 years now.

I would say bathe the entire dog with dog shampoo. I use solid gold shampoos.
I would rinse him very well also.
hope he gets to feeling better.
His teeth shouldn't be bad at this age. But, they sell dog toothpaste and brushes at the petstore.
I would brush them after the bath and see if he is more comfortable.
