Abstract

Intra-alveolar infraction and malformation of the apical part of the permanent left maxillary canine in an adult male wild boar (Sus scrofa L.) is documented. The infraction and its sequelae produced an irregular mass of reparative tissue that led to the formation of two growing ends of the tooth.
