Endstage dental disease with dystrophic calcification

The radiograph shows the severe changes that can take place in the teeth and surrounding bone in rabbits affected by PSADD (progressive syndrome of acquired dental disease). The deformed, misshapen , dysplastic teeth have become calcified. Most of the crowns are broken off. The bone is very thin. These changes cannot be seen without radiography or CT scanning. Clinically, the rabbit had few or no visible crowns but could eat soft food. There were palpable bony abnormalities of the jaw.
