Analgesic Considerations for Oral Surgery

This 3-year-old pug has severe chronic ulcerative paradental stomatitis (CUPS). This condition produces significant pain. Failure of response to strict daily home care and prophylaxis every three months resulted in definitive resolution with full mouth extractions. Full scope pain management is paramount in chronic cases such as these.
Analgesics are an essential component to treating a variety of painful oral conditions in dogs and cats. Chronic pain and acute pain associated with oral surgery comprise the majority of pain states where analgesics are considered. Individual patient circumstances vary considerably and knowledge of individual agents and their mechanisms help us choose the correct analgesics for each patient.

Surgical Pain
National Pet Dental Health Month in February is a reminder of the importance of providing state-of-the-art oral care for our patients year round. Managing periodontal disease is by far the most common problem we encounter as general practitioners and specialists alike. 
 
Proper diagnosis of periodontal lesions involves a complete oral examination, periodontal probing and full-mouth dental radiography. Periodontal lesion therapy involves painful procedures including periodontal flap surgery and tooth extraction, requiring appropriate analgesic choices.
