3 YEAR OLD FEMALE SPAYED SHIH TZU MIXED BREED DOG
This is a dentigerous cyst for 405 resulting in marked osteolysis and expansion for
the right rostral mandible, and loss of bone distal to 404.
Both 406 and 407 may have been missing or may have been lost due to the
osteolysis. The crown remnant for 405 is within the cyst.
Rostral mandibular oral radiograph
The best treatment option is excision of the cyst and its lining followed by placement
of a canine bone bank origin allograft to help regenerate bone to regain right rostral
mandibular strength and to maintain 404.
