Dental elastics for dogs


Dental elastics for dogs from Petdesign.fr offer a practical and effective solution to temporarily correct the position of your pet's teeth. Specially designed to meet the orthodontic needs of dogs, these elastics correct malocclusions, poorly implanted teeth and mild prognathism problems. By using our dental elastics, you offer your pet better oral health, while avoiding penalties in dog shows during competitions or exhibitions.


Easy to use, the dental elastics are quickly placed from fang to fang, at the base of the teeth, without causing any discomfort to your animal. Simply cut the elastic strip to the size of your dog's mouth for a perfect fit. Once in place, the elastics help to gradually move protruding teeth into their correct position. When the teeth have achieved the desired alignment, keep the elastics in place for a few weeks to allow the teeth to assert themselves in their new corrected position.

Technical Information

  • Composition: Made of high quality rubber, dental elastics are resistant and durable.
  • Size: Each strip of elastic measures 50 centimeters in length, to be cut according to the size of the dog's mouth for a personalized fit.
  • Usage: Dental elastics are intended to temporarily correct the position of the teeth in dogs requiring orthodontic intervention.
  • Application: Place the elastics at the base of the teeth, without touching the gums, for optimal comfort for your animal.
  • Maintenance: Regularly monitor the adjustment of the elastics and replace them if necessary to maintain effective dental correction.

Additional Questions and Answers

Are these elastics suitable for correcting a prognathic jaw in my dog? No, dental elastics do not correct a prognathic jaw. They are specifically designed to move protruding teeth into their correct position.

How long should the elastics be left in place to achieve results? It is recommended to keep the elastics in place for a few weeks once the teeth have reached the desired position, to allow for the teeth to assert themselves in their new corrected position.

How do I adjust the size of the elastics for my dog? Each elastic band measures 50 centimeters and can be cut to suit the size of your dog's mouth, ensuring a perfect fit for comfortable use .

5 signs that may encourage you to use Dental Elastics for Dogs:

  1. Your dog has dental malocclusions or poorly implanted teeth.
  2. You participate in competitions or dog shows and wish to avoid penalties at shows.
  3. Your dog has slight prognathia or pincer malocclusion.
  4. You are looking for a practical and non-invasive solution to correct the position of your pet's teeth.
  5. You want to give your dog better oral health and a dazzling smile.

The use of orthodontic elastics to correct prognathism in dogs is based on the principles of dental mechanics, similar to their use in human orthodontics. These elastics apply a constant force to the teeth and jaws, promoting their movement to more desirable and functional positions.

Mechanical Phenomenon

  1. Application of Force: Orthodontic elastics exert a traction force between selected teeth of the upper and lower jaw. This force is carefully calculated to be sufficient to stimulate tooth movement without causing damage.

  2. Biological Response: The movement of the teeth caused by the elastics is supported by a biological reaction in the surrounding tissues, facilitating the movement of the teeth and the realignment of the jaws.


  1. Non-Invasive: Compared to surgical procedures, the use of elastics is less invasive and may be preferred for moderate jaw adjustments.

  2. Adaptability: The elastics can be adjusted in strength and position to meet the specific needs of each dog, allowing personalization of the treatment.

  3. Comfort: Although it may vary, elastics generally provide a higher level of comfort than stiffer braces or surgical procedures.

  4. Effectiveness: For some cases of mild to moderate prognathism, elastics can be very effective in realigning teeth and improving jaw function.

Important Details

  • Duration of Treatment: The duration may vary depending on the severity of the prognathism and the individual response to treatment. Rubber bands must be worn almost constantly, with frequent replacements to maintain their effectiveness.

  • Dog Cooperation: The success of the treatment also depends on the cooperation of the dog and the ability of the owners to follow instructions.


Imagine using rubber bands to slowly close an open book. The rubber bands apply a continuous force that, over time, pulls the two covers of the book together (the dog's jaws). The constant, controlled pressure changes the position of the pages (the teeth) until the book is closed as desired. This process requires time and constant pressure to accomplish effectively, much like orthodontic treatment with rubber bands in dogs.

In summary, orthodontic elastics may offer an effective and less invasive method for correcting prognathism in dogs.
