Feline Tooth Resorption

Therapy depends on the visualization of the periodontal ligament.

  • If the periodontal ligament is present, the tooth should be extracted. X-rays should be taken afterwards to ensure complete extraction.

  • If the periodontal ligament is absent, the exposed crown should be surgically removed, leaving the root. The surrounding gum tissue should be sutured over the defect, allowing the root to continue to resorb.
