Refuses to go to the right

I know I know. Feel like I'm posting everyday lately. Anyway. I had posted a previous thread about how my new ride is disrespecting me. I was lunged while riding him the other day and then when we went off the lunge he was much better. All equipment fits him well so I know it's not that.

Also before I bought him I had ridden him on multiple occasions and he was awesome. Now his new issue is he does not want to go to the right and fights me on it hardcore to the point where he's pulling his head and pinning his ears. When I lunge him to the right, when I'm not on him he gets a little pissy but eventually does it without ears pinned etc. I'm not sure how to correct this behavior and I don't want to yank on his mouth to get him to go to the right but I also want him to be happy going to the right as well.

*Also I think he's cutting some adult teeth, which he had started right before I got him so I'm not sure if that's what causing the grouchiness but I'm a little discouraged right now and I'm trying not to be.

maybe he needs a chiro adjustment. Have you had his teeth checked by an equine dentist?
