Question about tooth issue

I noticed Wilson, who is 3, was having a little blood on his tennis ball when playing catch.
I checked his mouth and there seems to be a problem with the two little teeth behind his fang on his left side. I've attached a couple pictures.

Has anyone seen anything like this? I'm taking him to the Vet Thursday

The last picture is his right side, which seems fine

Thank you!

No experience with it, please let us know what the vet says about it.

Hi,
I was getting a bit concerned that if the tooth needed to come out and I waited until Thursday to see my regular vet, Wilson might have to wait until after the weekend to have the procedure. I took him in today to see the other vet in the office. She said that it is in the wrong position. It can't stay that way so it has to be extracted. He's having it done Thursday morning. bummer. He's never been anesthetized before. I hope he's ok.

wow, never heard of anything like that and can't imagine a toy moving a tooth. Hope all goes well with the extraction.

It really looks like it got shoved back and not pulled forward out of place. No telling what these guys get into some times.

Hope Wilson is home and happy in no time!

Thank you for the replies.
Wilson is fine. He wants to play and he's eating fine.

The vet prescribed Rimadyl but I'm not going to give it to him until after the procedure. He doesn't need it now and I don't like all the side effects so no sense giving it when he's ok.

She also prescribed Clindamycin for any possible infections. I am going to start him on that tomorrow.

I'm really not crazy about the Rimadyl. Anyone have any opinions on that?

It looks like he's missing at least one of the small premolars and the one in place looks out of alignment. Wonder what happened?

Long term use of rimadyl is iffy.

It's good for short term needs like this. <- We have a "as needed" prescription for our collie who has a trick neck.

Looking at those pics made my mouth hurt. o_O
