Story at-a-glance

  • Tooth resorption is a painful, progressive condition that occurs in dogs, and more commonly, cats
  • Tooth resorption is the gradual destruction of a tooth or teeth caused by cells called odontoclasts; the process usually starts on the outside of a tooth at the gum line
  • Symptoms can include drooling, bleed from the mouth and difficulty eating; it may not be obvious that your pet is also in pain
  • Recommended treatment of tooth resorption involves complete extraction of the affected tooth, all fragments and all root structures
  • Prevention tips include home dental care, twice-yearly veterinary exams for pets diagnosed with the condition and careful management of dietary vitamin D intake
