Default How can I inspect her teeth?

So last night Gertie was chewing on some stuff she found on my living room floor (a stick and a crayon) because she wanted to anoint. When she anointed, she spread little pieces of crayon paper on herself because she'd chewed off a little piece, but then what came after that was pinkish. (The crayon paper was green.) That leads me to believe that she was maybe bleeding, so I tried to look in her mouth, and she was having none of it. She hardly ever balls up or huffs at me, but she was very huffy when I tried to pull her lip down to check her teeth.

She was acting normal, and she's eating fine, so I doubt it's anything serious. But for my own peace of mind, I'd like to check. Is there any way I can check her mouth without getting skewered to death?
