FIND OUT WHY
This 18 month old dog presented for extraction of a partially erupted canine in a dog. To avoid potential dentigerous cyst formation a marginal alveoloplasty and apically positioned flap was performed to avoid extraction of the canine tooth. The two adjacent incisors were extracted to facilitate alveoleplasty and closure. Removal of germinal epithelium to the cemento-enamel junction, exposing the crown will prevent cyst formation that is common with unerupted teeth in dogs.
