Scope and range of Mammalian dentition

ALL vertebrates are susceptible to ALL forms of dental disease. The range and scope of the normal clinical variation and clinical manifestation of all this oral disease is limited only by the vast variety of species encountered. Normal dentition encountered in a mixed Veterinary Dental Practice ranges in size from the tiny needle like incisors seen in this South American Margay (a most unique jungle cat about the size of a small domestic house cat) opposed to this Asian Elephant’s mandibular molar tooth, which is about the size and weight of the largest Los Angeles phone book.
