OH NO… My pet broke a tooth! by Dr. Sarah Martin

Written by Dr. Sarah Martin

How did it happen? They can break a tooth due to trauma like being hit by a car OR by chewing on something hard—we have seen many broken teeth after bones, dental chews and even chewing on ice.

After the tooth is fractured, bacteria from the mouth have access to the pulp (root canal) and infect the tooth. Eventually the tooth will dies and become a party for bacteria!!

These infected teeth are painful!!!! If you have ever needed a root canal then you can relate!

But only a few of our animal patients will show discomfort, they prefer to suffer in silence

What should be done about a fractured tooth!!  At Park Road Veterinary Clinic we would extract the tooth. A veterinary dentist could perform a root canal.
