Should I have to tell about current medications to my dentist?
Definitely.Tooth is a part of your body.
Its treatment depends on the general health of the patient.
For example,if you are a diabetic,it is better to get your tooth pulled out only when your blood sugar is under control. Uncontrolled diabetics are prone for many infections and result in complications and delayed healing.
Similarly, Blood pressure also play an important role in clotting.
Patients taking thyroxine are given plain LA if any required.
Some patients are taking Ecospirin, Clopidogrel, Deplatt etc…
These are prescribed for cardiac patients.
Any patient taking such drugs should undergo any elective procedures only after stopping them for atleast 5 days prior to procedure.
So,discussing your medical condition with your dentist is of paramount importance.
