Tell Your Dentist About Prescriptions North Arlington, NJ

Although prescription medications each carry their own set of side effects, many affect oral health and dental treatment. Patients undergoing medical treatment or have ongoing conditions requiring medication may not be open with their dentist about the prescriptions they are taking. Despite the risks of ineligibility for certain dental treatments, the dentist must be aware of medications taken to best care for the patient's oral health concerns.

Patients who build a strong rapport with their dentist increase the likelihood of proper treatment, preventative treatment, and altering medications to suit oral needs. At the same time, they are aware of the risks that medical and oral medications have when combined as well as procedures that put them at a higher risk of other complications. After discussing medical history and prescribed medications with a complete health dentist, a patient can outweigh the risks and rewards and come to a sound conclusion.
