my dog broke a 4th premolar and first molar on the same side. has anybody had these teeth extracted. would my dog miss the teeth. would he chew bones or eat food (raw) on the extract side. i have the option to do a root canal but they costs a lot of money. Im curious to see how the extraction site looks all healed up to those who had the dogs teeth extracted. pics would be cool to see. any help would be great.

There is a post written about losing an upper 4th premolar, broken on a large marrow bone. Missing those two teeth wont slow a dog down when it comes to raw food. If root canal is too expensive, extraction is your next best option. Dogs heal well after extractions, I recommend feeding ground food for 5-7 days or until sutures heal.
Best of luck!

I've seen so many dogs have their upper fourth premolars and upper first molars removed without much of an issue. Really the only thing to consider is possibly having to clean the lower teeth on that side since there will no longer be any teeth for them to grind against.
If those teeth are broken you can either have them extracted for cheap or go to a canine dental specialist and spend loads of money to see if they're repairable. With the chance of possible future problems with the repairs.
