Question Chipped tooth and a missing one ?

Ok just remembered some thing about my visit out to my boy that I was going to ask about ....
His Canine tooth ( upper jaw) is totally not there .... But his right side one is .... Is this normal or perhaps he needs to grow it ? He is 6 yrs this yr ... Also I noticed one of his incisors is chipped where the tooth meets the gum... Could this be causing him any pain ? His gums look pretty healthy in general but I am yet to get a dentist out to him. When I put the bit ( 5.5 inch standard snaffle) in he is fine , he chomps a little but after about five mins he settles. He isn't head shy just doesn't like the fuss of fitting a new head piece. Any suggestions or thoughts ? Is there a supplement designed to help with teeth ?

My horse is missing a front tooth. One of my FILs horses is missing a tooth as well. It shouldn't be a problem. Lots of horses are missing a tooth. As for the chipped tooth, I just took a horse to the vet for a chipped tooth that had rotted where the chip was. What he told me was that horses teeth, unlike our teeth, continue to grow. So unless the gums were infected, I could just wait for the chip to grow out. That was 2 months ago and now the chip is about half way down his tooth rather than up at the gum line. If you are really worried about it have your vet take a look.

Had a small pony that was missing a front tooth. Had severe little man syndrome. ****it finally got fed up with him and kicked him in the face. Was really funny looking actually. I think hew deserved it. I hated that horse. Was just plain mean.

Thank you for the advice , his tooth (where chipped ) is not rotten, and as for vet check up I will be getting one soon just to see what I am really working with. :) thank you again

My boys tooth is chipped from smacking his head on a metal feed been as a younger horse. The dentist wasn't worried about it, he was worried about the teeth furter along his gob! Made me stick my hand right up to feel all the sharp edges.. He is 11 this year

My 6 y/o has got no damaged teeth, but both hsi top canines ae not there, I think, there is a bump but I can't rememebr if there is or not haha, He is also due for a dental visit though. :)
