tooth problems

chris has a slightly twisted tooth. what should i do ? he dosnt have any problems with eating. his upper incisors are very short his lower incisors are quite a bit longer then the upper. He keeps his teeth worn down though. he is a lop rabbit and i know they can have tooth problems. could the tooth twist so far as to need trimming? I am really worried and i would never trim his teeth myself because i am not experienced.

does his mouth seem sore when you touch it? if it is, then you should consider a vet visit, if not, he should probably be okay if he maintains regular eating and drinking habits... my bunny lives with a twisted tooth and he's just fine

How is it twisted? How does he eat? Is he favoring one side when he eats? Is the tooth over grown? The vet should be your first consideration to rule out any infections and they can put him under some anesthesia so they can guage whether the tooth should come out or not.
Rabbit teeth need to be maintained and checked regularly.

He is eating very well and he is even greedy!!! His teeth wear down pretty evenly except the fact that the upper teeth are almost shorter than the peg teeth. I have touched his mouth hundreds of times and he does not really seem to mind.
