Noel, an 11 year old Shih Tzu, came to see Dr. Bill to get oral surgery performed. Noel was diagnosed with Stage 3 Periodontal Disease and had several teeth with resorptive lesions. These lesions cause the tooth to essentially eat itself. These specific type of tooth lesions are not very common in dogs, but are fairly common in felines. In almost all cases, these teeth need removed. In this case, however, the lesions were not too advanced and she received a crown amputation. Noel did have several other extractions. She is now in great oral health and is doing great!
My dog, Noel, had a very positive experience during her dental procedure. The staff and Vet’s are all wonderful and very knowledgeable. Noel was treated very well and spoiled. Thanks to Greenhaven!!
