Horses can chew the bit for reasons other than teeth problems, but from what I've seen, it's more of a meditative chomping, not a chewing and head-tossing. I have to get my horse's teeth floated more than once per year, and the "sign" that he gives me that it's time for the dentist is that he gets mouthy and starts messing with the bit.
I'd get the dentist out to check her teeth and float them (which almost certainly needs to be done, given what you said above, whether or not this is what is causing the head-tossing, etc.) before exploring alternative explanations for the behavior.
