Do rabbit teeth grow back? Yes and no. While some teeth never grow in again after falling out, all of your teeth can continue to grow throughout your life. Even if a tooth falls out or is removed, it does not mean that it is permanently lost. Your pet will still be able to eat as usual since the space is taken up by an empty tooth socket and not a missing tooth. Teeth are made up of three layers: the outermost layer is called the enamel; the middle layer is known as the dentine, and the innermost layer is known as the pulp. The outermost layer of teeth grows back because it has a very hard enamel on its surface which makes it resistant to decay-causing bacteria and other substances that can break down teeth if they reach their inner layers. But what about teeth that have been removed for any reason? Some people think that once these are gone for good, they are never coming back but this isn’t true at all. You may notice sometimes when you brush your pet’s teeth that there are some spaces between their teeth where you cannot reach them with your toothbrush, this is because they have fallen out (and unfortunately not grown back in again). But just because this space has appeared does not mean the tooth has been lost for good. All of their other teeth continue to grow inwards towards these empty sockets, so in reality, nothing has changed!
How Do Rabbits Lose Their Teeth?
There are two main ways that rabbits can lose teeth. The first is through trauma, which occurs when a rabbit bites down on something too hard and or too often, or when its teeth accidentally get caught in something (like a toy or your hand). If your rabbit does bite down on something too hard or gets a mouth injury, it’s important to seek veterinary help to prevent the tooth from becoming loose (and possibly damaged) and to fasten the tooth back up with a simple bandage. The other reason that your pet’s teeth may fall out is because of old age. The wear and tear that happens to teeth as they age can cause them to become loose and fall out in some rabbits. If you notice that any of your pet’s teeth are falling out and don’t have a good reason behind it, speaking to your veterinarian may be a good idea.
Will Rabbit Teeth Grow Back?
Yes, your rabbit’s teeth can grow back. The length of time it takes for your rabbit’s teeth to start growing back will differ from rabbit to rabbit, but they will all be able to grow new teeth again as they get older. Just like humans, the outer surface of your pet’s teeth will harden with age. The inner layers of the teeth become softer, making them more susceptible to decay-causing bacteria the longer they are left untreated. If a rabbit’s teeth start to become loose, it’s important to seek veterinary care as soon as possible. The longer your rabbit’s teeth remain loose and exposed, the more likely they are to get damaged from decay-causing bacteria and from chewing on harder objects.
Why Do Rabbits Lose Their Teeth?
While rabbits are known for their long lives, some of them do lose their teeth as they get older. Many people are concerned when this happens because they assume that their rabbit’s teeth will never grow back. This is not the case at all. As your rabbit’s teeth get older, they become more likely to get damaged from decay-causing bacteria and from chewing on harder objects. If this happens, they may start to fall out.

The longer your rabbit’s teeth remain exposed, the more likely they are to get damaged from decay-causing bacteria and from chewing on harder objects.
Can Rabbits Have Tooth Repairs?
Only certain kinds of repairs can be done on rabbit teeth. Since rabbits naturally have very short teeth, dental work on them must be very precise to avoid damaging their teeth. Tooth repairs are only able to be done on the surface of a rabbit’s teeth, so they cannot help with a rabbit’s teeth that are coming out of the gums or those that are root-caused. The most common dental repair that rabbits need is called a root canal. This procedure involves cleaning an infected tooth and filling it with a special material to prevent it from breaking down and becoming loose. Some rabbits may need a complete root canal on their teeth, but this is only done if the infection is so severe that it is causing the tooth to break down.
