Dental disease

Rabbit teeth are open-rooted, meaning that they continuously erupt and grow throughout the rabbit's lifetime. If a rabbit has congenital or acquired dental disease, then the teeth may overgrow or grow distorted, which can cause life-long problems. This factsheet aims to discuss the common causes and treatments for dental disease in rabbits.
