Hi everyone, I'm currently on immunosuppressants for the TED, had a tooth infection 10 days ago, walk-in clinic gave me 7 days of antibiotics, pain and swelling all now gone, went to see new dentist yesterday (old one retired) and am now feeling absolutely devastated. aside from he said he won't be doing any restorative treatment because of my lifestyle (I have sugar in tea and eat sweets ect.) so basic management only (extract and pain relief) he wants to extract 5 teeth, I then told him about the TED and drugs and he wasn't sure if he could go ahead so is writing to the hospital to ask. after doing an xray he then said I have an infection in 4 teeth and an abscess in another, (I had no idea) and said (TWICE) that if the infection goes into my brain my life is at risk, he wrote out a pres then said he wasn't sure if I could take it with the drugs I'm on so tore it up, I have an appt with my doctor this morning and will ring the eye clinic later but right now I feel like I'm falling apart
