    Default Canine Dental Implants

    My fire breather really wrecked himself good today. En route to the bird, he spotted a white rock embedded in the ground a foot to the right of the line and a few feet short of the bird. At his normal hypersonic full speed he attemptted to pick up the rock.... we seen dust fly as he let out a yelp. Idiot got the bird and came running back covered in blood lookin like he was in a horror movie and lined up for the next bird.

    Needless to say, that dust was remains of his teeth! Loaded up quickly while training partners made the emergency vet visit call. Four top incisors smashed out along with both canines broken badly on the left side. We are back home now and he is on pain meds. Surgery is scheduled for Saturday morning.

    Anybody ever had any dentals implants done?

    No first hand experience but, I've seen where "bite dogs" have had titanium implants done. It can be done. good luck.
    May you pin all the marks and line the blinds!!

    I had a dog break a lower canine and we did a root cancel with a gold crown. It worked great. It is my understanding that implants can be done but it is a long process. Before your vet removes the teeth you need to find a dental specialist and see what can be done with what portion of the teeth are left.

    I remember several years ago at a trial I was warming my dog up doing walking singles at day light with my buddy David Barrrow and I went out to throw for Chester and he did the same excact thing, white rock and broke his canine tooth. I believe he finished that trial but was in a lot of pain.

    He is doing fine today. Consultation & surgery tomorrow at Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center with board certified veterinary dentist Dr Krista Mendoza.

    From what our primary vet could see, looks like our Mr Horsepower will be sporting an expensive titanium grill! Happy birth day to me, chaaa-ching!!!!

    Wow. How old are these dogs?

    Mine comes back with chunks of grass hanging out of her mouth, I can see this happening...

    I hope he is back to retrieving soon!

    Wow terrible accident, let us know what they decide to do, I've been toying with the Idea of getting a cavity filled on my dog, but they haven't been really forth coming with a price, hard to find a canine dentist, they are very specialty. Can't imagine what implants may cost, but at 3 years, It's probably worth it.
