Lance's Accident

by sands904 on 9/5/2009 at 8:23 AM in Lance

Yesterday morning I was playing fetch in the living room with the three dogs like normal. I threw the toy for Lance and he ran into our coffee table. I made a loud thud so I went over to check his mouth. He wasn't bleeding. I checked his teeth. I chipped his upper right canine tooth. It broke off the tip and a little up the side. You could see just a small amount of red which I believe is the pulp.

I called the vet as soon as they opened at 8am. We went in at 2:45 and the vet looked at his tooth. She said we could put a sealant over it which is a temporary fix and will only last 6 months to a year and that would limit the things he can chew on. He is such a playful wonderful boy I hate to limit his activity. Otherwise he needs to have the tooth removed or have a root canal. I hate to remove his canine tooth since he is only a little over a year old. We have an appointment to go to a dental specialist in a little over a week to discuss the options.

I feel terrible...
