When your pet comes in to have a dental procedure, the health of each tooth is evaluated. If a tooth is fractured to the point of the pulp is exposed (nerve and blood supply), if there is excessive loss of alveolar bone support around the bone, if the root is infected or if there is a cavity in dogs or an ododontoclastic resorptive lesion (similar to a cavity) in cats then it will be recommended that the tooth be extracted.
A dental x-ray may be needed to evaluate the state of the root of the tooth.Before an extraction all pets are given a dental nerve block to freeze the area that will be manipulated to ensure that your pet does not feel pain from the procedure.
