Are there dog braces for teeth? Since the 1980s, veterinary dentists have used braces and other orthodontic appliances to treat dogs with painful and potentially dangerous dental issues.
Should dogs have braces? YES! Many breeds typically have odd teeth, whether it be overbites, underbites, or crooked teeth making it difficult to close their mouths or chew. If your dog has teeth that hit other teeth or soft tissue when they chew or bark, your veterinarian can advise you on braces for your dog.
Do vets do dog braces? Veterinarians always like to see proof. There have been studies done by veterinarian colleges to help us know that braces do work. If you are a big researcher you can access those here.
Can you straighten dog’s teeth? Using an Orthodontic Device. Talk to your vet about orthodontic devices. Your vet may recommend putting a device to put in your dog’s mouth to realign the abnormally positioned teeth. A popular orthodontic device for dogs is the inclined plane, also known as a bite plate.
