This photo is of my Eyelash Crested Gecko named Kronos. Recently, I have noticed some swelling on the bottom part of his jaw, both sides towards the back, and while he is feeding I can see dark bits stuck in his teeth – possibly coconut fiber as that is his substrate.
Two months ago, I noticed a similar dark substance in his mouth with no swelling and took him to the vet because I thought it was mouth rot, but it was just coconut fiber substrate.
Could the swelling of his bottom jaw be from coconut fiber, or is it actually mouth rot this time? Does anyone know how to clean an Eyelash Crested Gecko’s teeth so that this does not happen again? The veterinarian cleaned his teeth but I didn’t see how he did it? I can’t get Kronos to stay still or open his mouth to even get a good look inside.
