Dentistry in exotic companion mammals.

Dentistry in exotic companion mammals.

Dentistry in exotic companion mammals is a quickly developing area of companion animal dentistry as more and more clients seeking for the best care for their pets.

This is particularly true in herbivorous species with completely elodont dentition, such are rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and degus. Studies published in recent years showed that the prevalence of dental disease in these species ranging from 32 to 60 % (Crossley 2001, Jekl et al. 2008, 2011, Minarikova et al 2015).

In contrast to the growth of this field of veterinary dentistry, the prevention of the dental disease is still unsatisfactory and some inappropriate techniques (e.g. incisor clinical crown high adjustment, inappropriate odontogenic abscess treatment) are still performed in the veterinary practice. Moreover, feeding exotic companion mammals is still a primary concern of dental health.
