How to Address and Stabilize Oral Pathology
in the Emergeny Room

Robert Furman, BVMS, MRCVS, Diplomate AVDC, Diplomate EVDC
Southern California Veterinary Dental Specialties and Oral Surgery

It is very common for emergency veterinarians to disregard oral disease, thinking it is more of a general practice problem and they will not be asked to treat it. While it may be rare, emergency veterinarians will be faced with the occasional oral/dental problem and appropriate treatment can be critical for short term comfort as well as long term prognosis. Furthermore, much of what you have been taught about dentistry is likely inaccurate as many beliefs have been disproven. This lecture will introduce the more common “emergency” oral/dental presentations. We will discuss their clinical presentation, appropriate diagnostic plan, and emergency therapy. Finally, we will briefly cover the required definitive care.
Fractured teeth
Crown fractures in veterinary medicine can be basically classified as complicated or uncomplicated. Complicated crown fractures have direct pulp exposure, whereas uncomplicated crown fractures have direct dentinal but not pulp exposure. Both types of fracture require therapy, however treatments are often different.
Clinical Presentation:
In general, only cases of complicated crown fracture will be presented to the emergency room. These are typically fresh tooth fractures following a fight, hit by car, or chewing on a hard toy or bone.
