FIND OUT WHY
This radiograph of impacted 411 is from a 2 year old chihuahua mix named Skippy John. A colleague of mine found this during a routine COHAT. The tooth is not visible in the mouth. I think a dentigerous cyst if forming, due to the large lucencey distal to 411. Though I thought the sliver of alveolar bone along the distal aspect of 411 was odd, giving an appearance as though the tooth was pushed ventrally due to trauma or something. This is probably my mind trying to make up things. Regardless, I plan to extract 411 and likely 410 so I can gain better access to 411. Any thoughts on whether this is a routine cyst or otherwise?
