Fracture palatal root

The palatal root often splits/fractures following trauma - RTA or fall from a height. It is often missed during the clinical examination but many cats will show pain eating with no apparent other dental problem.

    This is the commonest injury I find with high rise syndrome in both dogs and cats; fractured teeth!
