You have two options (or both):
1. Have a vet take an x-ray before the tooth is removed (make sure the plate has the date, name of dog, registration, and tat or chip number as well as the vet's other info).
2. Take the dog to a conformation show and do the dental exam. I'm not sure about USA but I've seen them offered at every WDA show because the SV judges can do them. If it's not on the entry form, contact the club and see if they offer it, usually they will. Usually they are $10-$20.
