My girl is going in Friday for 2 molar extractions. Can anyone tell me what to expect? I am so worried but these teeth need out. My other girl is going in next week for the same thing and I just want to know more about this from a fellow grey owner.

 

Any one know how long they will keep her under for this?

 

Thanks!

 

I am sure I will be a nervous wreck on Friday.

Energy had both his molars removed. Actually, MOST of his teeth were gone by age 10. He did well with all of his extractions. :-))

 

Hoping all goes well with yours. Sending you love, hugs and prayers!

Do they do ok with out the molars? I know that they really need out. Bea's gums bleed a lot when I brush and her breath is terrible. She was a return and she just had a dental in April but the old vet left them in!!! I don't know why they didn't come out then!

She'll do fine without them.

Let me just share what I learned that will help. Ask the vet if they were difficult extractions or they came out very easily.

If they were difficult, expect there to be swelling, and if you put ice on her jaw once she's home, and do it until she won't let you anymore this will really help there not to be much swelling the next morning and will help her be more comfortable and in less pain

Thanks! I will ask. The vet said the roots are completley exposed so I don't really know what that means.

It means they need to come out. :(

Also means she'll feel better once she's healed. :)

And that you should brush the teeth she has left every day. My boys recommend chicken paste (poulty-flavored enzymatic toothpaste). :D

 

Best wishes for a smooth dental. :thumbs-up

It's just like with us, when the roots are exposed like that it's because the gums have receded to expose them. She will feel much better with them out

I hope so! She also has a thyroid issue. I know that sometimes can cause a breath problem. The vet thinks the dental will help with the breath odor. Bea has had a rough time. She got returned in June and then we got and ever since then, we have been trying to fix her thryoid issue, the last vet had her on the wrong dose. I just want her healthy!
