My op is in the next 6 weeks and my dentist said i needed my wisdom teeth out first,however it was desided that it was going to be to much of a risk so i have been told that they are staying in.I have always had AB cover when at the dentists but when this came up i asked my doctor and he said that they no longer recomend AB cover.
I always take 3gram of amoxycillin 2hrs before any dentist work and have been every time I have been to the dentist since I had my MHV implanted 12years ago. I am unsure whether this has changed in Aust however I would rather be safe than sorry as the risk of endocarditis via dentistry is high without antibiotic cover. When I had my wisdom teeth out I had IV antibiotics before and after the procedure.
