Malocclusion is a condition in which the teeth do not line up properly and therefore do not wear down properly. A sign would be uneven or overly long teeth.

Malocclusion is a disease that affects the incisors and molars of rabbits and rodents, causing overgrowth, improper alignment, as well as curling of the incisors and problems closing the mouth. Symptoms of malocclusion include a loss of appetite, drooling, swelling around the jaw, nasal discharge, and increased tear production. You might also notice your rabbit having trouble eating and drinking.

Malocclusion of incisors can be overgrown or unevenly worn front upper and lower teeth. Molars are difficult to check but reduced eating, weight loss, and slobbering are signs of malocclusion.
