Occlusion Problems

Occlusion is the "bite", so this group of problems relates to a misalignment between the jaws - or between individual teeth. 

A "Normal Bite" for a dog is shown below. The upper incisors slightly overlap the lowers (a "scissor bite" arrangement) and the premolars "interdigitate" - the upper ones fit into the spaces between lower ones (a "pinking shears" arrangement), with the upper cheek teeth lying on the outside of the lower teeth.
