So Gryphon is in the transition of losing puppy teeth and getting his permanent teeth.

When I look in his mouth, I happen to think that this transition is not going really very well. He lost all of the little teeth in the front (incisors?) just fine, but I am seeing that his adult canine teeth are coming in just behind his puppy canine teeth. Some of his doggy molar type teeth are starting to come lose, but I am really worried about the canines.

Will these remaining puppy teeth affect the placement of the new canines, or will they shove the puppy teeth out of the way?

I called my vet, and they told me to wait until he was 8 months old.

He isn't chewing excessively, either, you would hardly know that this dog is a puppy let alone teething.

Should I encourage him to chew more?

Yes I would encourage him to chew more. Provide him with meaty raw bones and other hard things to chew otherwise your vet may have to remove the teeth. Cha-ching$$$.
