Veterinary Dentistry Conference - Exotic Pets 2007
The veterinary dentistry becomes a well established scientific discipline as well as very important specialization in veterinary practice. The existence of the European Veterinary Dental Society with 16th European Congresses and other meetings and workshops is confirmation of the practical importance of veterinary dentistry in modern veterinary medicine. But nowadays more and more cases are seen on veterinary clinics dealing with non-traditional patients. Oral cavity diseases appear very common in zoo and exotic animals. Therefore, veterinarians, conservationists, and exotic pet hobbyists want to learn more about oral cavity anatomy, physiology and optimal medical care for healthy teeth in exotic pets.

The participants practically performed oral cavity examination in conscious reptiles and small mammals. Further oral cavity examination consisted of oral cavity endoscopy in these species (animals under anaesthesia or cadavers), practical skull/teeth radiography with the use of portable X-Ray unit and AFP EVA-Vet® Digital Imaging System) and radiography interpretation. The practitioners or veterinary students extracted teeth in rabbits and performed occlusal adjustment of clinical crowns in small mammals in practical courses. The use of dental digital radiography was also presented in lectures.
