Dog with Enamel Hypoplasia Hypocalcification and Canine Tooth Fracture

This puppy presented for a fractured right mandibular canine tooth.  The pet parent preferred saving the tooth with a root canal.  Unfortunately the crown was severely compromised with enamel hypocalification and hypoplasia that predisposed to the fracture.  This occurred due to unknown trauma to the tooth during enamel development, sometime prior to eruption. Extraction was needed.  The following is a pictorial summary of the procedure.

Placement of interdental suture.  Obtain bites in the lingual mucosa and the vestibular attached gingiva.  Simple interrupted sutures of 4-0 monocryl is my personal preferrence.
