Question about teeth and cantering

I read that if a horse's teeth aren't floated properly, that it may cause the horse to resist cantering or flying lead changes. Can someone explain why?

Our equine dentist just found a couple "hooks" when working on my OTTB for his yearly floating. We got him 9 months ago and "supposedly" his teeth had just been done.

I am now thinking back to times that he crow-hopped when asked to canter, and I'm wondering if there could be a connection.

I highly doubt poor teeth are specific to just cantering outcomes. If the teeth are in poor shape, the horse will be aggravated when halyards, bridled, and/or ridden at all. That's a very odd thing to say. O_o
