History and Physical Examination Findings

A 1.7-year-old indoor domestic shorthair cat with no reported history of trauma was referred because of a missing left maxillary canine tooth. Two weeks prior to presentation, oral examination by the referring veterinarian revealed the presence of a complete set of permanent teeth, except for a persistent deciduous left maxillary canine tooth and absence of the permanent left maxillary canine tooth. Once the left maxillary deciduous canine tooth exfoliated and no permanent canine tooth erupted, the cat was referred for evaluation and diagnostic imaging.

Findings on referral physical examination were largely unremarkable, apart from reduced
