From what I read, it is going to be either braces or an acrylic plate to correct the alignment. And that would only be needed on the lower teeth -maybe even only in the area where the incisors are. I did find this article Easton PA Animal Hospital: Pet Dental Care/Orthodontics | Cummings Veterinary Hospital, Easton PA
Of course, there is the option of leaving the teeth alone if your dog can eat normally and the braces or plates would only be for cosmetic purposes. That is one question I would ask at the consultation.

|Nico Pico||We should have known better. I just read the tug info on Leerburg. We have a padded tug, which we use properly, but, he's not as interested in. Is there anything we can do, short of putting braces on the dog, to try to move them back? I'm so disappointed, because his teeth & bite looked good before.|

|Mary Beth||That is the reason I use a padded tug instead of a ball. The dog bites down on the tug and there is give. There is a good explanation of tugs and what kind to buy on Leerburg.com.|

Incisors Out of Alignment
We noticed that our male's lower 2 incisors have shifted. The dog is 3, & loves to play tug with a ball on a rope. The teeth aren't loose, & he doesn't seem to be favoring them. Has anyone had experience with this? Any advice is appreciated. We will be taking him to a veterinary dentist for a consult, but, like to go to these appointments "armed" with information. Thanks.
