cat cavities

Feline resorptive lesions are also know as “Cat Cavities.”

Often a cat’s gums in the affected area will be cherry red in color. A good way to determine if your cat is affected is to touch the gum with a Q-tip above the suspected lesion, and if the cat’s jaws chatter this condition is highly suspected.

Resorption occurs at the level of the tooth root as well as the crown. With the presence of these lesions the affected tooth is predisposed to infections. If the roots are being resorbed the recommendation is to perform crown amputation. However, if the resorption is above the gum line we recommend extracting the tooth. This cannot be fully determined without dental x-rays.
