Camel dentistry and maxillofacial surgery!

This camel had a hole in her cheek from a draining tract on the face. The teeth grow continuously like horses and need to be filed down every 1-2 years or so. This camel’s tooth was so long it poked through its cheek and made the hole. Food material was tightly packed in the draining tract. A tooth had a slab fracture and another was loose along with very sharp points. Since the camel is wild, Dr. Smith used a dart gun to sedate her. Middletown Animal Hospital is the only veterinary hospital in Lake County with this capability. All of the camel's dental abnormalities were corrected: rostral ramps, caudal hooks, wave, points, sharp canines, overgrown incisors
