Probably malocclusion. It’s for lack of words, where the teeth grow improperly. Sometimes it can be treated. I have seen rats have the teeth removed and that has worked, but more often than not they go in every so often to have the teeth trimmed down. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC339280/ You need to take it to an exotics vet and discuss your options. You may learn how to handle it at home but you need to take her to the vet regardless. It is painful and will leave her unhealthy since she can’t eat properly.

I think you should take him to the vet to fix his teeth but I think it cost a lot of money.

Get her teeth trimmed by a vet. Also feed her Timothy hay (with her pellet food) from now on, that will help keep her teeth trimmed down. Best of luck to you and piggy..
