    Default Tooth pain before surgery

    surgery is Feb 17th in Mexico.
    I went to the dentist I was having tooth pain and swelling. This was Thursday. I've been on antibiotics and mrotrin and still not feeling 100%. Not sure what to do. I mentioned to my Dr about going to the dentist and maybe needing a filling - they said for last week that was fine just no asprin closer to the date. I don't want to risk my surgery since I'm heading to mexico. do I just suck it up til I get back?

    Is this something the dentist could not fix?? Just wondering why he only gave you antibiotics and did not treat the issue. If you can get it taken care of then I would assume you will be fine but if the dentist isn't treating it I am not sure. You still have a little time. What time frame did your surgeon mean when he said "closer to the date"? Definitely things you will want to get answers to before proceeding.

    NO idea about the dentist. Since I was in pain they got me into the other dentist in the office. thinking I'm going to call tommorrow and see if I can get it with the other/regular dentist and see what happens. he wasn't too clear about it. said there was some dark under my root canal but didn't think that was it since they are older.

    Yeah that is weird. Follow up with your dentist. Let me know what he says.

    I know from experience that most Doctors want you to stop taking NSAIDS (asprin, motrin, naproxen, etc.) about 2 weeks before your surgery date. However, some Doctors are ok with you stopping them about a week before your surgery. These medications can thin the blood and can cause excessive bleeding during surgery. So, the sooner you stop taking them, the better. Best of luck with your surgery, and your tooth issue! I hate dentists

    So, if the Dentist gave you an antibiotic did he say you had an infection that he wanted treated before he fixes the tooth? Ughhh I hate dentists!

    If there is an infection you have to have that treated before you go into surgery. My thoughts.

    Keep us posted!

    The dentist was not the normal one I've seen. ugh. he said call back if I have pain still or call when I'm ready for me fillings. which I have a few small fillings to get taken care of. Near my pain is where I had 2 root canals many years ago. he said that shouldn't be an issue but never said what was the issue.

    I would definitely continue to pursue this BEFORE the surgery. You can't have surgery with an infection. I had blood work two days before my surgery and I'm sure an infection would have shown up and they would have delayed it, so get healthy first!

    I think if you were told by your doctor that everything will go smoothly so there is no reason to worry, but anyway, you can consult another specialist to make sure that you were advised correctly. You can ask a regular doctor, but you can also ask a dentist. If you don't know another dentist, that could advise you, I think you could appeal to this dentistry: https://thehealthysmile.net/dental-s...-village-ohio/, as they are always kind and friendly. I am sure they will give you the best advice.

    he ADA recommends that patients get a dental examination and clearance from their dentist prior to elective surgeries. If gingivitis and periodontal bacteria is detected, treatment often includes oral antibiotics and a simple, non-invasive procedure to remove tartar and bacteria from the teeth.

    Last year I had the strangest and painful experience in my life. I was taking dinner with my family in a Restaurant. After I finished dinner I have noticed that my tooth implant was missing, I was very calm because I didn't know at that time that swallowing an implant causes so much damage, I had a very painful surgery on my stomach because the tooth was stuck in the gastric tract. After the operation, I had to find a good dentist to put a new implant. My friend advised me to visit the Implant dentist in Eastlake OH. I am very satisfied with the operation because I am using this implant for a year and I don't have any issues with it.
