Tag Archives: lingual floor trauma
This Scottish Terrier dog had a severe Class III malocclusion resulting in canine trauma from the maxillary intermediate incisors and lingual floor trauma from the maxillary central incisors. Extraction of the offending was resolved the traumatic occlusion.
Thank you for signing me up on the blog. I been diagnosing dental disease daily and recommending treatments with true conviction. I even did a cat extraction!
I actually had an interesting case today and I was wondering if anything can be done with orthodontics to help him. Or whether he will need extractions.
Cody presented for his neuter today and on oral exam I noted:
2. The left maxilla is longer than the right.
3. The left upper incisors are pressing on the lower gingiva and creating depressions.
