Abstract

Feline tooth resorption is a common and painful condition affecting many middle-aged and older cats. Though many theories exist on the cause of this condition, no etiology has yet been determined. It is likely that multiple factors are involved in the development and progression of tooth resorption including cytokines, growth factors, and plasma and crevicular fluid levels of key electrolytes, tissue pH, and activators of osteoclasts. This study examined 40 client-owned cats for the presence of tooth resorption. Serum levels of calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium were measured as well as the pH of oral tissues. Results did not demonstrate an association between electrolyte levels or pH and the presence of resorptive lesions. The overall prevalence of tooth resorption was lower than that of most previously published studies.
