Veterinary Dentistry Dental Cases

Dear Colleagues

Dear Colleagues,

This case involves a 12-year-old neutered Miniature Dachshund bitch, Leika. She has had a fractured canine tooth, 204, for at least six years. It was radiographed 18 months ago [attached] when I thought that the roots looked normal.

The external appearance of the tooth has not changed. However, recently the owner has noticed her jaws juddering particularly in the mornings.

She is scheduled to come in for a COHAT shortly when I will reassess the tooth.

Assuming that the radiographic appearance of the root has not changed, would you treat it conservatively? I am very aware of the tendency for Dachsies to develop deep pockets on the palatal aspects of the canines, which tend to result in oronasal fistulae. These sites will be probed very carefully.

Thank you all for your help with my cases – it is very much appreciated.

David
