Does anyone with a mechanic / artificial / prosthetic heart valve take 3g dose of Amoxicillin before having invasive dental procedures! Even just for a scale and polish? I think the advice from NICE since 2008 has been for dental professionals to not offer patients antibiotics routinely, but high risk patients should continue being given antiobiotics. There have been some tragic cases of Infective Endocarditis recently due to dental work and wondered if anyone out there had any advice please.
