Does anyone have experience with Veterinary Dentists?
Aries has a broken left 3rd Incisor and a slab fracture on her left 4th premolar. Both have tartar buildup over the fractures, so they are probably pretty old.
The vet is talking about extracting both teeth. The 3rd incisor is broken off almost to the root, and what remains is very loose, so I do not see a way to spare that tooth, but I am thinking that extracting the 4th premolar seems extreme.
I do not see pulp exposure, but the vet says we would have to get the calculus off of the teeth to be able to see for sure. I am thinking that we should go to a veterinary dentist instead, so that capping might be an option, but I am not sure.
Our vet gave us an estimate for about $400 for the dentistry with extractions.
What do you guys think?
