Medication

Before any dental treatment, it is essential that you inform your dentist of your detailed medical history, including all medication you are taking.

Some medications may impede the inflammatory reaction required for healing, possibly resulting in hemorrhaging, delayed scarring or local infection following dental work.

Caution

Before any kind of dental treatment, it is very important that you inform your dentist of any change in your general health since your previous visit, and give him or her a list of prescribed and over the counter medications you are taking. In fact, it is a good idea to always have a copy of this list with you.

Drug allergies

Remember to tell your dentist about any allergies you have to specific medications.
