To determine the frequency of supernumerary teeth in Greyhounds.


55 Greyhounds obtained anonymously from a variety of breeders.


Greyhounds were examined for the presence of supernumerary teeth.


Supernumerary teeth were present in 20 of 55 (36.4%) Greyhounds surveyed.


Location of supernumerary teeth, usually first premolars, is not random, but favors occurrence in the upper arcade. Occurrence of supernumerary teeth did not favor the left or right side.

Clinical Relevance

Because an increasing number of veterinary anatomy textbooks use Greyhounds as typical examples, it is important to note the high frequency of supernumerary teeth. (Am J Vet Res 1998;59:16–17)
