In the following posts I will be using the terms malocclusion and dental disease interchangeably, as they mean the same thing.
Rabbits have 28 teeth. Their most well-known teeth are the incisors, which are visible when you open your rabbit's mouth. Behind the incisors are the peg teeth, which are what distinguish lagomorphs from rodents. Behind a gap in the rabbit's mouth, are the molars, or "cheek teeth". These cannot be seen by simply pulling up the rabbit's lips; they typically have to be checked using a tool that all vets have. Below, you can see a vet using that tool to check the back molars on a rabbit I used to have, Gracie.
Well, that's all for today's post. I hope you learned something new. See you next time!
