This patient has carnasial tooth with an enamel fracture, that has not reached the pulp yet! and Being the Largest tooth in the mouth, saving it is much better than removing it. It is a primary chewing and shearing tooth in a canine oral cavity.
Ceasar a magnificnet German Shepard – damaged his upper premolar 4. Ceasar was refered to us by Canine Dental Hygiene Services, a teeth cleaning service for dogs without anesthetic. They picked up the need for repair of the damaged enamel before it reached the pulp cavity.
7 May 2019 This handsome boy Ceasar 👑 who chipped his carnassial tooth which is the largest tooth in a dog’s mouth! To strengthen the tooth and prevent the tooth from breaking or becoming infected and needing to be extracted it was restored with a dental composite the same way a human filling is done, and the same way a beak restoration is done.
Check out this beautiful boy’s before and after! Thank you for being such a perfect patient Ceasar!
