Just a quick note...The bit sits in the bar of the mouth (behind the canines and in front of the premolars. If you have your bit set too far back, then it can sit right under the wolf teeth or on the premolars which is shouldn't. Usually when wolf teeth cause issues, it's because when we pull on the bit, it draws the sensitive cheek tissue into the pointed wolf tooth, not the actual bit contacting the wolf tooth. Some smaller wolf teeth are not well anchored into the alveolar bone and thus will move in the gingival tissue which can be very sensitive. Some of these may also be completely cover by gingival tissue and are referred to as "blind wolf teeth", which I find do cause more of an issue. Some wolf teeth do sit well forward of the premolar and may directly interfere with a bit, however, this is much more uncommon. Some wolf teeth are very large, well seated into the bone, and are more like an extranumery premolar. These generally do not cause any issues.
