Image D source code Annotated skull showing features of PSADD
This skull shows many of the changes that take place during PSADD. The white arrows point to elongated apices of the cheek teeth. The blue arrows point to deformed sections of bone over curve roots of the teeth. The turquois arrow points to a poorly enamelled tooth with ridges on its surface, The green arrows point to loss of alveolar bone supporting the teeth. The yellow arrow points to translucent bone. The black arrow points to gaps where crowns have broken off some teeth and the red arrows points to deformed bone over distension of the maxillary sinus caused by onstruction of the nasolacrimal duct.

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.

Image Skull of a rabbit with very advanced dental disease
This skull shows the change that take place in the teeth and bones of rabbits in the end stages of the progressive syndrome of acquired dental disease (PSADD).

Image Description of the features of advanced dental disease
This image of the skull of a rabbit in the advanced stages of dental diseases has had arrows added to highlight the changes that have taken place. The GREEN arrows point to the elongated, calcified apices that have penetrated the alveolar bulla into the orbit. These teeth are ankylosed into the bone. The BLUE arrow points to the apex of the second upper cheek tooth that has penetrated the zygomatic prominence of the maxilla, which is the place that an elongated apex of this tooth always appears. The BLACK arrows point to crowns that have broken off completely. The PINK arrows point to two teeth with remaining crowns: a peg tooth and part of the second lower cheek tooth. The peg tooth still has enamel is the only crown that looks relatively normal. The crown of the second cheek tooth has split and fallen apart. The RED arrows point to thin translucent bone, which is always a feature of skulls of rabbits with advanced dental disease.
