Dog with a Class III Malocclusion (Underbite) with Incisors Causing Lingual Floor Trauma

Hi,

 

Thank you for signing me up on the blog. I been diagnosing dental disease daily and recommending treatments with true conviction. I even did a cat extraction!

 

I actually had an interesting case today and I was wondering if anything can be done with orthodontics to help him. Or whether he will need extractions.

 

Cody presented for his neuter today and on oral exam I noted:
1. Underbite
2. The left maxilla is longer than the right.
3. The left upper incisors are pressing on the lower gingiva and creating depressions.

 

(please see attached pictures)

 

Thank you,
