Image Mandible of rabbit with spurs on cheek teeth
This mandible of a rabbit with spurs on the cheek teeth shows the change in shape of the teeth and surrounding jaw. The bone is transparent. The teeth are curved along their entire length and the shape of the jaw has changed accordingly. The exposed crowns of the teeth are curved, rather than elongated, which is why the dental spurs are present. Apical elongation is evident and has resulted in swellings along the ventral border of the jaw. These changes are irreversible and cannot be cured by dentistry. Treatment can only be palliative rather than curative.
