Tooth Resorption Disease

Saturday, January 11, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

Tooth resorption is a dental condition in which an animal develops a lesion around the root of a tooth. It can appear to be a tooth fracture, or be hidden beneath the gum line. Tooth resorption occurs commonly in cats, about one in two cats have it. Feline dentists check for the condition routinely. Dogs can acquire the problem as well, but rarely do. If you notice a change in your pets eating habits and increased salivation, consider taking your pet to the veterinarian. He or she will take x rays to determine the affected teeth and stage of disease. Treatment may involve tooth extraction. To find out more, talk to your veterinarian or a veterinary dental specialist.

Remember, your pets count!
