First Dentist Visit

Postby pawstalker » Thu Jan 18, 2007 9:20 pm

I'm going to get my teeth cleaned and checked next week for the first time since being diagnosed. Do I need to do anything different with my meds?

Change in med routine for a cleaning probably isn't necessary. It's a pretty minor stress unless you're extremely averse to dentists.

Thanks Glenn. That's what I thought, but I just wanted to check.

I agree with Glenn. I actually had a root canal done without increasing my meds, and I was fine.

I had my wisdom teeth removed without too much more meds. I think I went up 5mg maybe. Your'll be ok. If you really are they worried, talk to your doctor. Kiesha

No, not all that worried at all. Just making sure since it's all new.

Thanks everybody.

I went into a severe addisionian crisis after a tooth extraction and was in the hospital a week, however, it was a year before I was diagnosed and on meds.
