Yes, their teeth are always growing. Most rats keep their own teeth in check with their food. Else you can give them chews like wood toys or Hamsteroids or the like.

As for their nails bricks or stones or those hard tunnel things can work. Sometimes.

rats also normally grind their teeth together, and unless they grow super-fast or are misaligned, teeth shouldn't ever really be a problem. i give my girls hamsteroids, and it helps, but i do that mostly because they simply love them.

i have a rock in my rat cage for my girls to step on, but a girl who works with me at the clinic regularly clips her rats nails with standard people nail clippers. depends on your rat, i suppose, if it will sit still for that. :)
