Appearance of crowns in advanced stages of dental disease

This image of the inside of the mouth of a rabbit with dental disease shows the upper arcade of diseased teeth. They are discoloured and misshapen but are not causing any soft tissue damage. These changes are irreversible and will affect a rabbit's ability to eat hay. Corrective dentistry or a hay only diet will only add to the rabbit's problems. A soft diet of nuggets and soft leafy green foods will extend the rabbit's life.
