A 6-month-old 3.7-kg male Chihuahua presented for neuter, removal of persistent deciduous maxillary canines, and dental imaging of unerupted teeth. The owner reported no discomfort or atypical teething/chewing. Aside from bilaterally absent mandibular first premolars and third molars, his preoperative exam was unremarkable. Intraoral dental radiographs were taken of the right and left first premolar and third molar regions (Figure 1). The owner was advised to schedule for reevaluation in 2 months (allowing time for natural dentition eruption) with imaging and removal of any unerupted teeth.
