why does adult dog nurse toy

My one year old male English Bulldog sucks on his stuffed toys as if he was a puppy nursing.  Any ideas why?

Have you had this teeth cleaned to check for dental problems?

Short of any dental problems I'd say he is probably orally fixated and it is his soothing behaviour.  One of my dogs can't sleep without a certain stuffed toy (her comfort), another has to be under the covers (or a blanket, or whatever she can find).  If his teeth are fine I wouldn't worry about it.
