Can't imagine what implants may cost, but at 3 years, It's probably worth it.
    Do you have a dentist that you have a good relationship with? Either professional, family, or friend? They can work on your dog at your vet's office under a vet's supervision (due to anesthetic), you just have to coordinate it between the vet and dentist. Most vet's would be glad for a "specialist" to come in and work on their clients! As a Hygienist, I can work on dogs and zoo animals in the state of Missouri as long as a vet is there supervising, and if it is within my scope of practice (I am allowed to scale, root plane, other periodontal procedures, but not extractions or fillings).
    My former boss actually came to my house and helped extract some retained canines on a couple of young dogs that I had. Of course this was a much simpler procedure than the one your dog needs.

    Several years ago, I had a young dog that rolled and broke a k9 tooth. The vet pulled it, I don't think she ever missed it.

    I also had a weimaraner that bit into an electrical cord, she had 3 teeth die. We had to have the vet pull they, he told us she would get along fine with out them. She act fine.

    Good luck David Wolfe

    My 9 year old Golden chipped one of her canine teeth when she was about 1 1/2 years old. We went to the University close by that specializes in animal care to have her looked at. She ended up going back 3 times in the process, once for a cleaning, once for a fitting and finally for the root canal and installation of the titanium tooth. It was a little pricey, but with her being young I figured it would be worth it. She has not had a problem with it since. Good luck and I hope your dog recovers quick with no problems.

    If anyone is curious, you can find veterinary dentists listed by state here:

    I feel better prepared, there is a doggie dentist not far from where I live!

    Fingers crossed that today's surgery goes well.

    Pulled remains of four incisors, some root canals, one implant and three pulp caps later.....

    Around seven and a half hours total including the initial consultation and all the x-rays. He really took a long time to recover from being under. Today, he is back to normal. No birds or bumpers for a month though!

    Thank you all for the phone calls, texts, email, pm's and replies.
