Broken Tooth

Hi all, my dog who just turned 2 fractured his upper molar. My vet called it the carnassial tooth and said it was the largest tooth in the dogs mouth. My vet gave me 2 options either root canal or extraction. I have no idea which to do. extraction seems a lot cheaper and simpler but he will lose a giant tooth. I have no idea which to choose. Has anybody had this problem?

I think this is a situation where finances come into play. With it being such a significant tooth, that is what i would aim for, especially in a younger dog. Here are 2 links with information that may help you with your decision

Have you discussed the options with your vet and heard their opinion on which procedure would be best? I think your vet will be the best person to speak to about this.

My dog had a slab fracture on one of upper molars a few months ago. Personally, I'd just do extraction. They don't even notice its gone once everything is healed up. My guy still chews on his moose antler just as hard as before.

Does your dog still chew on both sides of his mouth?

My boy is going in for some extractions he cracked A few clear to his gums. Dope. I would also go the watt action route. If you notice issues eating deal with it then. But I'm sure your vet could tell you for sure. Or always get a second opinion if you're unsure. Good luck!

It looks like it never was there LOL. I'm sure you can find a healed pic on google. If u look at the gums behind the molars where there are no teeth, it looks just like a continuation of the gums.

My dog is not one to keep still for more than a few seconds during probing, not even going to attempt to take that picture sorry.

Same as when a human messes up their teeth. Your gum grows back in the hole over time.
