Veterinary Dentistry Dental Cases

THis is my own cat.

THis is my own cat. COHAT today. Had moderate generalized gingivitis. All pockets were fine, no resorptive lesions noted on exam. Except 407. I put in 307 to compare.

I extracted 407 (CA distal root – not by choice).

Questions: 1. What do you think is going on with that tooth?

2. should I have extracted it?

3. Root fractured on elevation. I could not visualize root with in the bone. So I smoothed out the area and closed.

I attempted a final smoothing of the root area, and didn’t look at the final xray until after I closed (my mistake) It looked and felt smooth, but I think I could have done a better job.

So what should I have done with this tooth? What should I do now?

Please be kind 🙂
