    I'm pretty sure they don't do dentures on dog. The risk of choking is much too high. Even with Extra Strength Polygrip.

    If a dog loses certain teeth (most molars), you just let them go without. If he loses really important teeth, you can do implants.

    Yes, I'm serious.

    Veterinary dentistry is very cool. Tends to be quite expensive because in addition to all of the stuff that humans need, you need specialized labs -- plus, as noted, anesthesia except in very specific circumstances. But it's incredibly cool.

    And like humans, the better dental health an animal has, in general, the better his overall health and the longer he'll live.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

      •  Ah. (0+ / 0-)

        Never sure what some folks know or don't know about veterinary issues around here. So I figure it's best to just play it safe, so some Kossack doesn't walk into her vet's office demanding a bridge for her 18 year old toothless dog because she saw it here.

        Ya never know, eh?
