What treatment is there for an overbite in a dog?

Some overbites can be corrected with dental appliances (similar to braces or headgear in humans), but this can be expensive and requires meeting with a veterinarian who is board-certified in animal dentistry. Other options include breaking and extending the lower jaw to match the upper jaw or pulling some teeth to allow the upper jaw to pull back a bit. I would start with an examination by your regular veterinarian to see if it appears the overbite will cause nutritional or structural problems. If the overbite is small, the dog may just be able to live with it and be a little different in appearance. However, if the overbite is large and could affect the dog's ability to eat and drink throughout life, you will need to get it fixed as soon as possible.
