Introduction

 

"Abigale", a 6 year old Cavalier, was presented with slab fractures of both maxillary fourth premolars (#108 #208).  She was displaying strange eating habits and at the time of her oral exam was showing signs of pain.

 

After proper protocol, further examination including dental images were completed under general anesthesia.  Surgical extractions were recommended due to the complexity of the fractures.

 

All options were discussed and considered; the owners chose to remove the teeth and place immediate implants, providing the bone and surrounding soft tissue would be supportive.

 

Surgery

Atraumatic surgical extractions were completed on both affected teeth, maintaining as much bone and surrounding soft tissue as possible.

Freeze dried bone allograft and a resorbable membrane barrier system were utilized, in order to accelerate bone and soft tissue regenerative properties.

Summary

 

 Veterinary dental implants are best when completed in two stages.

  • Stage 1 - Fixture placement
  • Stage 2 - Uncovering and impressions

        (4-5 months after fixture placement)
