When performing dental procedures on our patients, it is vital to know the anatomy of the oral cavity. Oral anatomy involves more than just how many teeth each species should have in their mouth. As veterinary professionals, you need to know how many roots each tooth should have, the normal structures that make up the periodontium, and how healthy anatomy appears so that pathology or abnormal pathology can be recognized and treated appropriately.
