FLASHBACK! As a puppy, Wilbur's severe overbite caused his teeth to be misaligned. If not treated, his lower canine teeth would have grown into his palate causing pain and injury and difficulty eating and closing his mouth. His bite was corrected by wearing braces from a veterinary dentist. ( Yes, there are animal dentists, but not for cosmetic surgery.) You can find the story and a photo of his orthodontics at The BARk Canine Culture Magazine.
