Hello. I've had a blue and gold macaw for about a year now. He was a rescued animal. When I got him, the left part of his lower beak was grown really long like a tooth of sorts. it was scraping against his upper beak, and making his mouth always be jutting to the side. I took him to a vet to have this corrected.

that "tooth" however keeps trying to grow back. It seems to grow faster than the rest of his beak, needing to be trimmed every two weeks.

Is there any way I can get his beak to grow more normal? He has a varied and healthy diet, plenty of things to chew on (and he chews all the time), and is in general a happy bird.


In the picture, its hard to see where the tooth grows, but you can kinda tell
