Dental resorptive lesions (RLs) are one of the most common oral problems of domestic cat. The cause has not been proved. RLs begin most frequently to the cementum-enamel junction (CEJ). The lesions may be difficult to see if covered by plaque, calculus and gingival tissue. Radiographs routinely reveal a more severe lesion than is indicated on clinical examination. RLs cause pain, loss of tooth and local or systemic effects.
The purpose of this study was to describe the management of RLs in twenty cats and how the total extraction of affected teeth has been the best treatment.
