Help - checking Hamster Teeth

Question

Help! How do I check my hamster's teeth?

 

I can't seem to scruff him so that he shows his teeth. Mostly he just faces me with this scrunched up "wtf are you doing to me" face.

 

I only get to see his teeth when he yawns at me, but there's no way of telling if it's overgrown because he's too quick. Tips, anyone?!

If I am not wrong, a hamster will hardly touch their food (commercial mix or organic seed), if he/she has issues with his/her teeth. Their diminished body mass will be significant too. Of course, our observation power depends on how much time we spent with our hammies each day :)

Besides not eating the dried food, any signs of drooling? This may indicate some teeth problem.
