Veterinary Dentistry Dental Cases

This is my first post.

This is my first post. I had a fun case last week that I was hoping to get some feedback on. Zack is a 10 month old German Shepherd Dog brought to me for treatment of an unerupted lower canine tooth.

I had received the radiographs by email before the procedure. I've removed unerupted upper canine teeth in the past, had never attempted a mandibular tooth, and thought it would be a good challenge.

I took several radiographs looking straight down on the mandible to see if I could best avoid the mandibular canal by a buccal or lingual approach, but eventually extracted the first three premolars and extracted the tooth through that window. It worked, but took forever. Anyone have any thoughts on a better way to deal with this?

Thanks, and hi
