Amelogenesis Imperfecta (Samoyed Type) is an inherited dental disorder affecting dogs. Affected dogs have abnormal or badly discolored teeth with irregular tooth surfaces. The deciduous or puppy teeth of these dogs are normal, but abnormalities are apparent upon eruption of the adult teeth. The teeth are often blunted with increased space between teeth due to thinning of the enamel layer. These dogs are predisposed to dental disease and subsequent advanced periodontal disease and bad breath. Tooth loss can occur due to severe abrasions, fractures, and tooth root infections.
