Bone Graft for Periodontal Disease in a Miniature Poodle Dog

untitled-12

This miniature poodle has periodontal disease and endodontic disease affecting the left mandibular second molar (tooth 310).  The tooth is mobile and has a wide periodontal ligament space and a periapical lucency.

Close approximation to the mandibular molar makes a bone graft a good choice.  This will maintain the alveolar ridge, maximizing the height of the bone upon healing.
