Is This Mouth Rot?

Postby TillyPilly » Mon Mar 01, 2021 5:36 pm

I’ve had Tilly for over 7 years now and have had no problems regarding her health besides tail rot when she was young. I noticed when she was basking today that her teeth were quite brown. I’m worried that she has mouth rot, but I’m not sure. Does this look like mouth rot, and if it isn’t is it normal or is it some other issue? I’m really worried and want to make sure that she is healthy or if not that I can get her in with a vet.

It doesn't look like mouth rot, just some stained teeth. The gums look good. If you offer some crunchy bugs like roaches or even some superworm or buffalo beetles the hard shells may help to clean the teeth and gums as they are chewed up. If that doesn't help, you could try rubbing some MaxiGuard gel on them with a q-tip which should help cleanse the teeth and gums a bit.

Thank you so much. It’s been stressing me out and I just wasn’t sure because I know very little about mouth rot. I don’t know if it was clear in the picture, but she has a small amount of yellow discoloration near her teeth, but I don’t remember if that was there before I tried to clean her teeth, so I’m not sure if it is irritated or not.
