I have just been to my dentist for 1st check up since diagnosis 4 weeks ago, updated him with me now having PBC, told him what it was & he changed 'cholangitis' to 'cirrhosis' as he said it meant more to him if he used that term, when I said it wasn't associated with alcohol his comment was 'REALLY?' He had never heard of it or the medication & wants to know the contra indications of using any local anaesthetic etc before doing a filling I need. Has anyone had problems with dental work? I see my consultant for the first time tomorrow since the diagnosis as consultant had written to GP to prescribe the Ursofalk, & she told me the diagnosis. I was left speechless & quite upset by my dentists attitude as I am only just getting my head round everything as it is.
