Abstract

Dental disease is one of the most common clinical conditions in pet chinchillas (Chinchilla lanigera); however; there is little published information regarding the normal anatomy of the chinchilla skull.This article addresses the normal dentition and skeletal anatomy of the chinchilla head as well as the diagnostic dental evaluation of chinchillas, including oral examination and appropriate imaging techniques. Diagnostic imaging studies comparing normal and severe dental disease in chinchillas are included.
