Teeth Misalignment in Cats

 

Treatment for Malocclusion of Teeth

 

Most bite malocclusions do not require treatment, but in some cases, extractions may be necessary. It’s a good idea to brush the teeth regularly to prevent abnormal build-up of tartar and plaque. Your veterinarian will recommend a dental specialist if you want to correct the teeth misalignment. In recent years, “braces” have been made for kittens to realign the teeth before they can become a health issue.
