Sebastian's tooth root abscess


Post   » Thu Apr 08, 2021 9:44 pm

So, we asked the vet about doing the antibiotic beads, and she said that it would actually require a much more involved surgery -- she'd have to make sure she got in there and got every single bit of affected tissue out, and she doesn't want to go that route yet. She did say, after she marsupialized his chin yesterday, that it looks a lot better in there than it did the last time, so she's optimistic, and doesn't think his remaining lower incisor is affected. Fingers crossed that this round actually clears out the abscess, and he doesn't have to go through it again...

It sounds like she is at least familiar with the antibiotic beads. I too hope this round clears the abscess.

It sounds like you have a good vet. Hopefully you’re on the road to recovery.
