Dental Procedures: Teeth Trimming
Treatment Type: Medical and Surgical Procedures
Caregiver: Your Choice - Do it Yourself or Use a Vet / Professional
When a rabbit or other small mammal has teeth which are misaligned (malocclusion), the teeth can grow too long because they're not being worn down by chewing.
To correct overgrown teeth, teeth trimming can be performed by either the animal owner or a vet.
Teeth trimming can cause broken and cracked teeth, and a preferred method of remedying overgrown teeth is to grind them with a dental burr.
