How is Sophia Doing 1 Week After Surgery? ๐Ÿฟโ˜บ๏ธโค๏ธ


At Dr. Emerson’s office, Sophia was remarkably calm prior to her examination. She even enjoyed a squirrel block! During Sophia’s exam, Dr. Emerson observed multiple severely infected/deteriorated molars that needed extracting. Her incisors were thankfully healthy enough to keep, BUT there appears to be a pocket around the base (pulp) of one lower incisor that will likely develop an odontoma later. This may be a big issue in the future, but for now Sophia can enjoy the functionality of all four incisors. Unfortunately the molar extractions were noticeably bothering Sophia, she wanted to eat her block but would immediately stop when she could feel discomfort chewing. I would then crush up the squirrel blocks and add a bit of yogurt to give her a softer alternative. This worked well, along with the formula she was given several times each day. It took longer than expected, but Sophia is finally eating her squirrel blocks again. Sophia was still hungry, so I offered her a second block. I may not need to bring Sophia back to Dr. Emerson for awhile, depending on how well she continues to progress. Hopefully the molar extractions are healing quickly, Sophia’s eating habits will show me if there are still issues. I trimmed her upper & lower incisors today, which is quite a challenge (due to her size) but thankfully not impossible. When I’m able, I will be improving the teeth trimmings with a dental-grade high speed drill that uses an air compressor. (Although the dremel method I’m currently using is better than pressure-based options like snips or side-cutting pliers, the heat & vibration of the dremel can still be damaging to squirrel teeth long-term. Since I plan on trimming the girls’ teeth for 10+ years, I want to preserve their teeth as best I can. The next steps for Sophia involve upgrading her living space as her fears subside and developing a bond with her. Stay tuned for more of this lovely girl.

Thanks for watching.
