Hi everyone. Am wondering if anyone has encountered this problem: 12 months ago the dentist took an xray when filling one of my teeth and it showed a hole in my jaw where there should be bone! I then asked the rheumatologist about stopping the AA as at that stage I had been on it for 5 years. She agreed as I was on a low dose of Pred at the time. Since then I have had a flare up and increased the Pred dose but she advised that I didn't need to take the AA as well. Yesterday I went to the dentist and the xray showed that the hole seems to have enlarged slightly. I am rather anxious and don't quite now where to turn next. Any advice would be gratefully received!
