Dead Tooth

Jack has his first dental tomorrow. He does have a top canine tooth that is dis colored and vet thinks dead. There are no problems with pain or abcess, it has been like this for awhile. Do you think it is a good idea to pull the tooth since he is having the dental done anyway or watch and wait more? Thanks for any input! Jack is three years old no major health problems.

My Duffy has 2 dead top teeth (fangs).....vet does not suggest pulling them unless it starts causing a problem. He explained that to pull those 2 teeth it's very involved especially with dogs with thinner snouts. The root goes up into the sinus cavity. So far it hasn't caused a problem for him.

With our group and my past experience with canine teeth in general, it is best to have a specialist deal with those teeth. Not to degrade vets, but when it comes to the canine teeth, as others have stated they are more involved when removing. My little girl that I adopted in Oct of last year had her lower left canine broken in half when I adopted her. The group paid for her to go to an oral surgeon since the lower canine is attached to the lower mandible. I know the upper canines are as complicated.
