I would add that weight-savings is another important reason. Hard to fly with fangs! Makes one kind of front-heavy too!

But a new idea has been proposed that may explain both why birds don't have teeth and why they underwent such an explosive radiation after the extinction of all non-avian dinosaurs. The hypothesis needs more work, but it's a paradigm shift that will trigger a lot of new research.
