Broken crowns

This rabbit was suffered from advanced dental disease. This is a view of the left side of his mouth with the tongue pushed one side with a spatula. Most of the crowns on the lower cheek teeth are gone. There is one very short flat remaining one visible in the photo. The remnants of the first upper cheek tooth are black and disintegrating. The second cheek tooth is split. This could have been the result of damage by a dental burr. The rabbit had recently undergone dentistry although it was not clear from the history what was done. 'Occlusal adjustment' was the term that was used to describe the procedure.
