Type II Tooth Resorption in a Cat Canine Tooth

This cat has type II tooth resorption with severe proliferation of a portion of the crown on the right canine tooth. The cusp was lost when the technician bumped the tooth during induction. Crown amputation and intentional root retention can only be done in cases like this were the tooth root bears no surrounding periodontal ligament, there is no endodontic disease and the root is being replaced by bone grossly and radiographically.

Exotic cat with eosinophilic granuloma and wry bite (mandibular asynchrony)

This cat presented for lingual floor trauma secondary to the left maxillary canine tooth.  A proliferative ulcerative lesion was present in the left caudal mucosa unassociated with the malocclusion.  A biopsy confirmed eosinophilic granuloma.  Prednisone at 1 mg/kg BID was initiated.  The patient is scheduled for reevaluation in April and orthodontic appliance application to move the canine caudally.   A bite block will be required to allow caudal movement.
