OTHER TOOTH AND JAW DEFICIENCIES:

Over- and underbite: by definite over- and underbite (gap of front teeth between top and bottom jaw the width of a match or greater) = offspring unregisterable.

The front teeth do not form a scissorbite: if slightly, a survey class II is permissable.

Tooth decay: not permissable for a breedsurvey.

Normal wear and discoloration: due to age will be taken into consideration, however without drastic change in rating. If teeth substance is preserved with yellowing or browning a breedsurvey class II is possible.
