Tooth fractures refer to tooth injuries involving damage to the enamel, dentin and cement. These injuries occur either on the enamel-covered top portion of the tooth (the crown) or the part below the gum line (the root).
Tooth fracture refers to traumatic injury to a tooth that manifests itself as a chip, crack, or break. Manifestations may also include dislocation or complete displacement of a tooth.
Complication of tooth fracture include inflammation and infection. Dogs with tooth fracture are in constant discomfort and pain. In some instances, the tooth's crown may be missing; blood or pink tissue may also be present on or around the affected area.
