How Much Does a Dog Broken Tooth Treatment Cost?

A tooth fracture in dogs is often caused by some sort of trauma such as being hit by an object or when chewing on something hard.  When enough pressure is exerted onto the tooth, it may break, leading to pain and/or an infection.

While a dog can fracture any of their teeth, the canine teeth and the large teeth in the back (premolars) are the most commonly fractured teeth.

Broken teeth, in a lot of scenarios, can be a problem and it is an issue which should be dealt with immediately to avoid a deadly infection from occurring in the future.

How much does broken dog tooth treatment cost at a local vet?

Type of TreatmentDescriptionAverage Price
Root canal therapyA root canal removes all of the infected pulp and fills the root canal with mendicants to help prevent an infection in the future. This is often the most common procedure performed and can be the best treatment option for most scenarios.$1,100 to $3,500+
Vital pulpotomy (pulp capping)If the fracture is fresh and there is no sign of infection, then a vet may consider this treatment option, most often for dogs younger than 18 months. During this procedure, a portion of the pulp will be removed, including any diseased aspect and a dressing will be applied.$850 to $1,300+
ExtractionDepending on the tooth and the severity of the break, an extraction may be considered to completely remove the tooth and its function. This treatment, however, is considered as a last resort as this procedure can affect your dog's chewing and can cause quite a bit of pain.$150 to $550+

NOTE:  These costs may not include the additional costs such as the initial appointment, x-rays, blood work, anesthesia, post-surgical hospitalization, medication and/or post-operative checkups.
