Pulpitis


The upper 4th premolar and the canine teeth are the most commonly fractured teeth in dogs.  All teeth should be examined by an animal dentist as soon as they are identified as being fractured.  Depending on the age of the patient and how recent the fracture there are three treatment choices. #1-Vital Pulpotomy [endodontics] #2- Root Canal [endodontics] #3- Extraction [exodontal] Extraction is the most invasive with a longer recovery time. Many times this becomes the primary care choice if endodontics will not benefit the patient.

Canine Acanthomatous Ameloblastoma



Canine Acantomatous Ameloblastom [CAA]
Notes from an Oral Surgeon
Segmental Rim Resection Mandiulectomy [SRRM]

The Acanthomatous Ameloblastoma is a benign yet very aggressive tumor arising from rests of odontogenic epithelium in the submucosa and periodontal ligament of the oral cavity. 

These tumors are locally invasive and destructive, resulting in lysis of alveolar bone and loss of teeth. Because these tumors are so infiltrative, local recurrence is common following excision, and recommended therapy typically includes:
Maxillectomy or Mandibulectomy or Segmental Rim Resection Mandibulectomy [SRRM] . 

If excision can be achieved, the prognosis is good, with 98–100% of dogs having no signs of recurrence 1–2 years after excision.
