      thanks for your comments.
      Do the following independent expert opinions change your mind?

      Dr. A, anesthesiologist and dentist ,states that it is not as necessary as
      they once thought to pre-medicate (antibiotics) as was originally thought, and
      Dr B, Plastics and Dermatology, said you cannot be sure the swelling is due to
      infection unless cultures were taken and to decide which antibiotics would be
      effective in light of the fact she had an autoimmune disease. It could be
      argued that she had the autoimmune disease from childhood cased the teeth
      problems causing tooth buds to not erupt properly. Where they erupted or not prior
      to surgery? It's always a risk to do wisdom teeth at age 28. The jaw bone is
      no longer soft. Certain antibiotics (sulfur) could have made her worse
      (autoimmune reaction.)

      The answer to this - and you can ask Dr.C , DDS that if someone eats
      bananas for a week before an extraction the potassium leaches into the gums,
      leaving very little swelling or bleeding if any. He is an awesome surgeon, does
      mainly wisdom teeth but also facial reconstruction.

      She could have had an autoimmune reaction in her airway to an inflammatory
      responds to *which beta 1-2-3 blocking - and cleansing and lots of IV solutions
      and low residue diet and prednisone could have cured. So if you go with
      Medical Standards of Practice it is a case of merit. Should have had antibiotics
      postoperatively, She already had an IV. No big deal giving them.

      She should win but probably will not in light of no research on Vit what ever
      it is see: Michael Jackson's skin care problem!

      From Ohio:
      Defendant's expert is a local board certified oral surgeon who testified that
      it is never a deviation from the standard of care not to prescribe an
      antibiotic before, during or after an extraction where a patient has been actively
      diagnosed with pericoronitis. This expert testified he determined the standard
      of care by talking to nine other local oral surgeons. This expert also
      testified that the tracheotomy performed on Plaintiff while she was in the hospital
      was not necessary and probably caused unnecessary trauma in the neck region.

      Do the docs get more money if extracting infected teeth? Or with a diagnosis
      of pericoronitis? It would be interesting to see his overall billing records.

      Did a dentist make the referral and what were his/her notes on pericoronitis
      or infection?

      Q. #1. Who knows, the amount of antibiotics prescribed prior to dental care
      may have not fought off the extent of the infection and/or have even been
      suseptable to the bug, but I bet if he had prescribed the antibiotics he would
      not be in this situation.

      Q. #2. Why the immune cells attack the melanocytes and kill them is
      unknown. Did this infection of the mouth lower her resistance and give the Vitiligo
      more strength?
