Have you been told in the past that you should pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to dental treatment? If so, you should check with your doctor to see if this is still a recommendation for you.
The American Heart Association, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Dental Association have updated these guidelines in recent years, and in some cases, the need for pre-medication for dental treatment is no longer necessary.
Of course, we always recommend that you talk with your physician about any medications that you should or should not take, and feel free to Contact Us if you have any questions.
