Hamster & Gerbil Dentistry
We are properly equipped to perform all types of dental procedures on your small rodent. Hamsters and gerbils have open rooted teeth (hypsodont). This means, their teeth are constantly growing throughout their life. Dental disease can occur due to different factors like genetics, poor consumption of hay, low calcium/vitamin D3 levels, malalignment caused by trauma, abscesses and other masses. Under anesthesia, we are able to trim incisors, molar points, perform extractions and can even perform more advanced dental surgery involving abscesses of the mandible.
