November's Dental Spotlight - Sadie

Sadie presented to us in September for her annual physical examination. Her owner reported no problems with her at that time. During her physical exam, moderate calculus and gingivitis were diagnosed. We scheduled Sadie for a dental T.E.A.M. (Treatment, Evaluation, and Maintenance) procedure, which involves pre-op bloodwork, IV catheter, IVfluids, antibiotic injection, pain management, scaling and polishing of teeth, and dental radiographs. To our surprise we found 2 supernumary teeth on her dental radiographs, her first premolars on the upper jaw. The only outward sign of this was a slight swelling where these teeth were hidden. We did oral surgery and removed these two teeth, because supernumary teeth can cause bone cysts and fistulas in the jaw, which are quite painful. We are happy to say Sadie is doing great and is pain free after her procedure.
