Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H for short. Cute puppy! : ) So to answer your question yes overbites cause misalignment of the teeth which can create issues later on which can be fairly manageable in my opinion, which include 1)Pressure sores from the teeth embedding in the lip area and 2) Increased chance of dental disease.
These are pretty manageable with some proactive measures on your part as an owner. First you want to stay on top of brushing your pets teeth. Brushing the teeth can greatly help with tartar build-up and can help you visualize the mouth daily so that problems can be addressed quickly and effectively.
Also there are endodontists that may be available in your area to place braces on your pets teeth (not unheard of in today's society) to help achieve proper alignment.
