Exclamation Help Bad Dental Issue Question Broken TEETH

my dog broke a 4th premolar and first molar on the same side. has anybody had these teeth extracted. would my dog miss the teeth. would he chew bones or eat food (raw) on the extract side. i have the option to do a root canal but they costs a lot of money. Im curious to see how the extraction site looks all healed up to those who had the dogs teeth extracted. pics would be cool to see. any help would be great.

If they could be fixed, that's the route I'd go. Expensive sure, but aren't the 4th premolars their go to teeth for chewing bones?

I know lots of dogs with a P4 extraction. They eat and chew just fine. The P1 is nothing.

My female broke her canines trying to open doors during storms. She had two root canals - expensive, but saved the teeth.

Molars and premolars normally cannot be removed, due to their strong fork like roots, the jaw bone can crack with attempt to do so. Sometimes GSDs have these teeth missing, and with the preliminary checks for the dog show it is discovered. These dogs' owners try to lie, saying that the tooth was removed by the vet. But nobody can fool the expert, who knows that it is vertually impossible to remove a molar without damaging the jaw! Crushing the tooth and extracting it fragment after fragment has its own complications, it would mean long term anaesthesia, too bad for heart despite all says about it. So, follow the advise of your vet and go for pulp removal and canal cleaning and filling. In a year time damaged tooth may start to rot at the bottom, you better come back for X-ray check if you noticed that your dog doesn't chew on that side. But then the jaw tissue would soften and it would be much easier to remove it.

Your dentist must suck if he's breaking jaws.

OP - go to a dentist ask talk to them about your options. My cat just had his last two top molars pulled (not sure the number) but my vet felt he could still easily eat the raw bones. Another week of healing before I can really test that.
