My mother is diabetic patient her age 63 years, she has dental problems. Some teeth are paining badly and moving little roots are damaged badly. Doctor prescribed the pain killer tablet for the teeth pain. She consumes one tablet for day when she get the pain and continues for 3 to 4 days . Some times even tablets also couldnot help her. My query is extraction of bad teeth is advisable for diabetic patient? If possible how to take care of same. Thanks for all your suggestions.

Yes it is advisible. if its in range of 250 maximum. If not the dentist can co ordinate with the physician and try to control with alternative meds. Usually an early morning appt with your dentist is advisible in such cases. For more details call 9819947716

Get the diabetes controlled and get them extracted, that will be the best way to do.. In controlled diabetic patients extraction can be a normal procedure, even if the diabetes is uncontrolled and if the situation requires, then extraction has to be done under heavy antibiotic coverage and all necessary protocols that are required. better would be let your mother control diabetes and then get them extracted

Having diabetes is not a contraindication at all to remove teeth. Its absolutely a normal procedure. We just take care for healing of the area after extraction. If wounds dont heal, it causes excessive blood loss which is dangerous. To be on safer side, we as dentist coordinate with diabetologist of the patient and with mutual consent the procedure is carried out. One thing over this i would like to mention is taking of pain killers is not the solution or treatment part. Over a period of time you will have its side effects. So i advice you to get it extracted.

hi...according to me when sugar kevel is controlled and if teeth can't be restored then get them extracted under antibiotic coverage and teeth which can be restored( means teeth which are paining but not mobile ) can go for Root canal treatment followed by crowns...
