Barack fractured his left lower canine tooth. A root canal was required to remove the dying pulp and the fracture site restored. A crown was used to protect the seal at the fracture site.
Many of our patients are law enforcement canines who detect bombs, drugs or help their officer/trainers apprehend criminals.
Some patients chew fences or crates and wear the back portion of the canine teeth making them prime for fracture. ¾ crowns are placed in these dogs to prevent further wear and eventual fracture.
