I have what my dentist called 'an extensive infection' beneath one of my lower back teeth. I was in a lot of discomfort last weekend but I've had 5 days of antibiotics and it is less painful.
The dentist told me to think about whether I wanted root canal work or an extraction. He thought that root canal would have a limited likelihood of success. So I've decided extraction is the better option.
I've taken allendronic acid for ten years because of the amount of pred I've had but stopped about six months ago as it was causing stomach problems.
My question is about dental surgery when there's been long-term use of allendronic acid. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
