Baby teeth problem

Last night I noticed that one of Titan's lower baby teeth hasn't fallen out and now the new one is growing in next to it. Has this happened to anyone else? I will call the vet and take him in asap. He eat's fine and chew's on his toy's/raw hide with no problems. I felt the tooth and it isn't loose either. If you have had to have dental work done on your little one what can I expect please. Thanks to everyone for all your help....love this group.

How old is Titan? Kubrick had a double row of teeth for at least a few weeks before the baby ones fell out on their own.

Titan will be six month's old on the 27th. All of his other teeth fell out with no problem's. He even gave me some of them like toy's. Yuck... My worry is that this one doesn't even feel loose.

Has he been neutered (or will he be)? Kubrick had ONE tooth that was not loose by the time of his neuter (at 6 months) and the vet just did a tooth extraction when he was out for the neuter. Usually all vets I've known look for teeth to extract when doing the neuter.

No I was planning on showing him so that is one operation I wasn't counting on.

With DOra all of her teeth fell out when her adult teeth came in but my maltese had to have 7 extracted! They did it during her spay so you may want to have the vet take a look at it- she had her spay done at 6 months.

Then I guess you just have to ask your vet about it. You don't want him to develop any jaw problems, especially if you intend on showing him.

Sorry I couldn't be of any more help!

My Sedona had to have one of her puppy canines removed because it was growing in at an odd angle and the doggie dentist thought it might puncture the roof of her mouth or worse, the adult tooth would follow the same path. To avoid all that we had it removed. I took her to the vet at 7:30 AM and by 2:30 PM we were on our way home.

I am currently going through this same thing with Boo, who will also turn 6 months on the 27th. I took him to the vet when I noticed this starting at 5.5 mos. I was very upset since we had just been there two weeks before for his neutering and was not loooking forward to another round of anethsesia to remove teeth that didnt fall out. She said that we should wait until he was 6-6.5 mos to make any determination if they need to be pulled. She did look at the ones that were coming in and said that they were coming in properly, except for one in his lower row of fronts teeth but those werent double, just crowded, which she felt might correct itself as the others fell away. She and I were very concerned about his molars which were double and his canines since those would effect him the most if they didint fall away. As of this past evening, the molars are no longer double. But the top canines and insizors are still double and not loose. I might have jumped the gun a bit by being concerned before I needed too. I didnt have this problem with any of our goldens, so this was all new to me. The Vet also indicated that it could be 7 mos or more before all the baby teeth are out! I guess I was looking for the same thing that happens to human babes to happen to Boo, the tooth falls out before the new one comes in. Our Vet said that the teeth come in behind the baby teeth on dogs....

Judy, I'd recommend you call his breeder first, so you can find out how his family lines do with teeth falling out on their own. Some families are more prone to needing professional extractions.

If you let adult teeth & baby teeth stay in side by side, it can mess up the alignment of his jaw. If you are thinking of showing him it is even more important to get the baby teeth out as soon as possible. If those baby teeth are still in after the adult teeth have been in a week, talk to your vet about removal.
