BEARDIE LOST A TOOTH

Hi everyone,

I have a super adorable and healthy beardie and just today, when we were helping him wipe his mouth, we found a broken tooth that was in his mouth. It was pointy, and a little black on the tip. I can upload a photo if I can try and capture the little thing.

Is it normal for beardies to lose their teeth?
He still eats and everything and poos normally, but since the weather's been getting colder, he usually sleeps for 2-3 days and then wakes up for a day. However, he does usually have some saliva around his mouth, so I don't know if contributes or not.

We cannot afford a vet as they're quite expensive where we are and I am afraid they are not qualified, so any advice on how our beardie is doing would be so helpful!

We aren't sure how old he is as we adopted him 2 years ago, but he should be at least an adult.

Thank you so much everyon!

Hello,

So sorry your dragon lost a tooth, this happens sometimes. He should be fine, just with one
missing tooth. A picture would be good if you can get one that is.
Since he is brumating, he probably isn't eating a whole lot, correct? Does it seem to be
bothering him any?
It is quite hard to find a qualified vet for reptiles, I agree.
He should be just fine though, but let us know how he is doing. Unless it starts to get infected
you shouldn't need to do anything.

You could put a dollar under his "pillow" or a nice juicy hornworm :lol:
