Hello I'm new here.
I have been taking Alendronic acid for nine months after breaking my arm in an accident. Now that we are all in 'lock down' in this country because of COVID-19 (no I haven't got it or any symptoms), as bad luck would have it, I have the most painful toothache and my dentist has refused to treat me. My last inspection was in January and he told me my teeth were in good condition as well as telling me that I needed to attend every six months onward. In desperation I had to go to a dental practice 20 miles away to get an emergency prescription for antibiotics which my own dentist would not do. I was also told by my own dentist not to take ibuprofen too! So on my own admission I have decided that I do not want to take Alendronic any longer especially after being told by my dentist that it would cause a fracture of my jaw and that the cavity would not heal if I have any teeth extracted. He was very disparaging about it. Is Alendronic acid generally not a dentists 'friend'? I hope I'm making some sense! Any thoughts please.
