Acquired incisor malocclusion

This lateral skull radiographs shows a rabbit with incisor malocclusion as part of the progressive syndrome of acquired dental disease (PSADD). The change in the relative position and shape of the upper and lower incisors has resulted in the teeth failing to meet and wear against each other. The shape and position of all the teeth has altered. There is apical elongation of all the teeth. The pulp cavities in the incisors are small. The occlusal surfaces of the cheek teeth have lost their normal zig zag appearance. The enamel folds in the centre of the teeth are indistinct or absent.
