A Healthy Mouth

A Healthy Mouth

The following photo essay demonstrates normal, desirable and functional oral/dental anatomy in a dog. It shows the proper number of teeth properly proportioned for the size of the mouth and properly spaced in a properly constructed and proportioned set of jaws.

I have labelled each tooth with its Modified Triadan number and a map of the mouth with these numbers and radiographs of a healthy set of teeth (in a different animal) can be found at https://vetdentedu.ca/2023/01/02/normal-canine-dental-radiographs/.

And I have a pdf version of this post, which you may download and save if you like. https://vetdentedu.ca/wp-content/uploads/2023/04/a-healthy-mouth.pdf
