My suggestion:  If you say to an American, "a dog's mouth emits no ivory", I don't think the person will know what you imply, because the notion of "dog's mouth" being filthy and unkempt is not really ingrained in their culture.

To convey the meaning of that sentence, I would use a not so literal translation, such as: once a foul mouth, always a foul mouth.  Even that may not be a very good translation.  I will have to ponder on this question tonight.
