This podcast covers various questions that veterinary dentists frequently receive, including distorted x-rays, tooth resorption in dogs, follow up after dental surgery, preventing tongue mutilation after extraction, using carbocaine for nerve blocks, signs of ineffective nerve blocks, diagnosing non-vital teeth, and whether to extract teeth with apical lucencies.
