What should I tell my doctor before dental root amputation?

Tell your doctor about any dental problems you’re having before getting a dental root amputation. You’ll also want to share your medical history and medications you take, including over-the-counter medications, herbal remedies, and supplements. These can sometimes interfere with healing. If you have a history of heart problems, make sure to tell your dentist. Some people who have heart problems need to take antibiotics before dental treatment. If you are allergic to medications or had a problem with anesthesia in the past, let your dentist know. Dental surgery is not usually recommended for pregnant women, so if you are pregnant or are possibly pregnant, tell your dentist. If you’re taking birth control pills, let your dentist to know, because antibiotics can sometimes make birth control pills less effective.
