Image C header Occlusal surfaces of the mandibular cheek teeth (labelled)
The occlusal surfaces of the cheek teeth show the enamel ridges forming blade like structures across the occlusal surfaces of the teeth. The indentation between each enamel ridge corresponds to the shape of the occlusal surface of the opposing tooth. Each enamel ridge occludes with the enamel edges of the opposing teeth, which makes the cheek effective in shearing through vegetation.

Image Normal incisors
These incisors are a normal shape and have smooth shiny enamel and no ridges. The tips are sharp. The tips of the lower incisors rest against the peg teeth behind the large upper incisors.

Image C header Appearance of normal cheek teeth with points and ridges
This image shows the right side of the oral cavity of an anaesthetised rabbit. The mouth is held open with a gag and cheek dilators. The tongue has been pushed to one side with a pair of curved scissors. A reflection of the teeth is mirrored on the scissors. The appearance of the cheek teeth can be seen. The enamel ridges that run across the centre of each cheek tooth form a series of vertical points alongside the tongue. These are normal. The teeth are all the same height, so the zigzag occlusal pattern is regular. The brown staining is from plant pigments.

Image text/texmacs Occlusal surfaces of the mandibular cheek teeth
This photograph shows a hemimandible from a wild rabbit. The hemimandible has been tipped slightly to show the regular points that are present on the lingual aspect of the lower cheek teeth. These are normal. They don't need to be removed although they will quickly grow back in a rabbit with healthy cheek teeth. The points are different from the lingually directed spurs that develop on pathologically curved teeth.

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.
