Antibiotics in the Dental Office

PillsWhen was the last time you had to take prescribed antibiotics? Many people are concerned with the overuse of certain medications in America. Are we allowing our bodies to have a proper chance to fight diseases? Farmington Hills dentist, Dr. Aziza Askari, will occasionally offer antibiotics to patients when there is an overwhelming dental health need, however.

Communication is Key

As a patient, we ask you to tell us about any medications you’re currently taking. Certain medications can greatly impact your oral and dental health. Some drugs can contribute to oral health conditions such as dry mouth, gum disease, and tooth decay. Other meds can thin your blood and impair your immunity. Dr. Aziza Askari may alter your dental plan depending on your medical history, including the drugs you take. Just as with a pregnancy or any pre-existing health condition, we need to know what medications you’re taking so that we can design a treatment plan which is 100% customized to your needs. If a medication you’re taking prevents us from performing your dental work safely, we will do everything in our power to reschedule the work for a future time which is convenient for you.

Your Best Interest

Our team at Comfort Dental Spa is committed to responsibility in prescribing you with any medication and antibiotics following dental procedures. We provide patients of all ages with a large variety of dental and oral needs. When we prescribe a medication to any of our patients, it’s usually only to manage pain or overcome an infection. We take a conservative but results-driven approach.  We need you to tell us if you have ever had an allergic reaction to a medication or a treatment. If necessary, we can team up with your general physician and other caregivers to determine which prescriptions will give you the safest and best results without interfering with any existing medications and health conditions.
