B/c she managed to damage the enamel on the backside of one canine. In order to prevent further damage, exposure of dentin, and eventual tooth-death, she is getting a 3/4 crown on that tooth. Titanium is the only thing that will hold up.

Sometimes not on the crown. Is the root exposed?

No, thats why we are doing a 3/4, so if some point down the road the root is damaged we can still do a root canal from the front of the tooth. Plus, the damage was only on the backside, likely from biting down on something metal. There were some metal specks imbeded in the tooth on the xray

Hunter,

That type of damage on back is from kennel and crate chewing.....Personal experience with my old dog. :-)

It may have been a piece of it, but she hasn't been kenneled in years. I know the type of damage you are referring to, Aska was a kennel biter before I had her and has prominent curved wear on the backs of the canines.

This, however, is probably not the result of kennel biting. She didn't have wear, she had cracked and chipped the enamel in an isolated spot. She has never been in a kennel she can actually get her teeth around anyway, and hasn't been kenneled in years. Also, consider that the other canines are 100% free of damage. The Dr (Dr. Queck, very well known veterinary dentist) doesn't feel it was from a kennel. We think it is either trama from biting/impacting something hard, or trauma related to the front side of the upper canine as she has very tightly fitting teeth.
