The veterinarian will learn how to avoid tooth extraction complications and treat the complication when it occurs. Learning objectives for this lecture include knowing surgical and non-surgical methods to treat complications associated with tooth extraction including retained roots, root displacement into the mandibular canal and nasal cavity, iatrogenic fracture of the mandible, delayed wound healing following a tooth extraction, bone sequestrum, and tooth elevator fragmentation. A case-based format will be used to present these complications including etiology and methods that could have prevented the complication.
