Papillon with overbite


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have a 4mths old male Papillon and he has an overbite . Breeder advises not to do any teeth removal till after adult teeth come in as she has been a registered breeder for 20yrs and feels it will correct itself but vet wants to remove teeth now and I am in doubt of validity of this. Would love input please

I would get an opinion from a dental vet. I see you’re in NSW - Dr Christine Hawke from Sydney Pet Dentistry is AMAZING. There are legitimate reasons to remove select teeth in puppies. Otherwise there are things like ball therapy or orthodontics or it could be a case of well actually this doesn’t need to be done at this stage (or at all!) and we’ll just keep monitoring. Trawl through Christine’s website, she has info about the problem I suspect your vet is seeing. https://sydneypetdentistry.com.au

from what ive seen the dental vets my friends have gone to almost without fail say to remove the puppy teeth, my two general practitioner  (non dental specialist) vets say the adult teeth  tend to follow the puppy teeth angles so my friend Nancy took to massaging the two bottom canines to the side so they cleared the jaw, think she did it every day hourly at the start to get them moving to the side.  Think on it, how many of you had kids got to playing with your teeth with your tongue and loosened a perfectly good tooth?  I know I sure did and the dentist gave me a good talking to and so had to concentrate on not playing with it, He said if I made it crooked the next tooth would follow at the same angle as I had changed the angle of the root in my jaw, he put on a brace so I couldnt forget and fiddle with it and it became solid in its spot again.  Nancy got the idea from one of her kids doing the same thing.    It worked. the baby teeth moved to the sides and the adult teeth came in same angle.

Yes Dr Christine does braces where appropriate and I imagine finances are also a consideration. Some of these dogs are constantly stabbing their gums when they close their mouths. Ouch!
