I am posting this on a few groups - so I apologize for those who see this more 
than once. I just want to make sure I get as much advice as possible.

My FeLv+, Bea, has had recurring gingivitis since she adopted me a year 
ago. Her gums get red and swollen. We've tried numerous treatments 
(brushing,antibiotics,anti-virals,cleaning) but to no avail nothing is helping 
her. The anti-biotics worked but have since stopped (which has me worried on a 
whole other level).
Other than her gum issue she is a healthy 3 year old.

I took her to a dental specialist yesterday who said the best course of action 
at this point would be partial, possibly full extraction. He said it was 
stomatitis, but nothing like the pictures I've seen on it - beginning stages. I 
was wondering if anyone else has had either full or partial extraction done and 
could offer any suggestions/advice.
I know it's probably the right thing to do but I'm just wondering how others 
have adjusted to life with no or few teeth.  And if anyone has experienced any 
complications I should be made aware of.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
