#37Increased Number of Iatrogenic Jaw Fractues Reported in General Practice Animal Dentistry!

The Answer: Oral Radiology and Telemedicine Dental X-ray Interpretation and Referral to an
Animal Dentist

Small breed dogs and cats are prone to jaw fractures in advanced periodontitis during exodontia in general practice.

The question remains why are extractions being performed without pre-operative dental x-rays?

Commmon areas of fracture of the mandible are:
1] The Mandibular Symphysis
2] The Anterior Mandible
3] Distal Mandible Pre-Molar and Molar Extractions

What to looks for in your pre-operative dental x-rays:
