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 🙂
