Mickey Needed X-rays

Dental X-ray shows the abscessed root of the missing canine (fang) tooth still in the socket. The root is causing the infection. After the root is gone, the socket can heal.

Mickey's Dental Care

This is the same dental X-ray with the root outlined in white and the abscess in red. The root was removed, the socket cleaned and grafted, and the gum sutured. Six other teeth with severe bone loss were also extracted.
