13584RE: [GIWorld-Hepatitis] A warning about dental work
- Dec 29, 2003I didn't have to have root canals for all 3, but all 3 teeth had to be
drilled to a stub. It took about 3 hours in the chair, with drilling going
on for about half of that. The dentist is very good, and not many could have
done so much so quickly. He wanted to do them at once because of the
interferon, and not have me coming back over and over again, which increases
risk of infection.
Sorry to hear that you broke a tooth over Christmas; I have done that too.
Why don't teeth ever break at a more convenient time, like just before you
have to go out for a bad meal?

My goodness, do you mean you had 3 root canals and crowns done at the same
time? It takes awhile to do one, nevermind 3. How long were you in the
chair getting this done? I can't believe a decent dentist would do all that
work in one shot....it's too much. I'm not on tx, but the pills I take make
my mouth very dry which leads to tooth problems....I just broke a tooth over
Christmas, not bad enuff to be a root canal but I need some fillings done.
Oooops I just noticed you said 2 hours of drilling, that's a lot...too much
to suit me. I hope your hearing comes back soon. Keep us posted and good
