Hello XXXXXXX,

Thanks for writing in.

XXXXXXX your dentist is right, in case of horizontal impaction as in your case, it is needed to be surgically removed.

For extraction and surgical removal of tooth, blood pressure and sugar must be controlled. In case of uncontrolled sugar level(diabetes), there will be delayed wound healing that is why controlled blood sugar level is needed. And in case of uncontrolled blood pressure there will be uncontrolled bleeding, that is why controlled blood pressure is needed.

Now I will tell you normal blood pressure and sugar level-

1.Blood pressure-120/80

2.Blood sugar-
a.Fasting-<110 mg/dl.
b.After taking food-<140 mg/dl.

There are reviews written by our users about doctors in our listing, those can guide you for a better doctor. You can search for a doctor in your area. WWW.WWWW.WW .

Hope this answered your query, if you have further any doubt I will be happy to help you.

Take Care.

My son soon to be 41yrs old had an injury at work that completely amputed his dominant right arm and externally amputed the external 98%. It was held on by a slither of skin in 2009. He has had 5 surgies. A bridge like bar inside the upper part of his arm and lower cavador nerves in the lower part. He has what they call a bear claw hand and wrist just flops so he has to wear a wrist brace but even though he has no feeling in certain parts of his hand he is in pain always especially in the cold. And where the bridge in the upper arm is you can t touch at all because it causes great pain. His WC cade was closed and now is on SSD and Medicare part A&B,but would never be able to afford any kind of medical bill balances. His medicines have cause him to have his teeth decay and he of course has no dental coverage at all. He needs a doctors that are willing to take care of his teeth with extractions and dentures but most important one that is willing to amputee his arm and give him a robotic one so he would once again have two arms and hands that work without pain any longer and then fix his teeth to aldso spot that pain and get him off his meds. But he also needs this all to be done pro bono since he would not be able to afford any cost. He is in the Bronx,NY.

I underwent angioplasty in Feb 2008 and 2 stents were placed. I am on cardace 10, stamlo 5, clopact 75,ecosprin 150 and atorvastin Ez (all one tab each). I require a tooth extraction for which the dentist has advised to stop ecosprin 150 for 5 days before the extraction. A cardiologust advised me to have ecosprin 75 daily instead of 150 strength for the 5 days. Another said as the angio aws in 2008Feb I can stopp the ecospin maybe 2 days before extraction. the dentist has agrred to stoppage of ecosprin 3 days before extaction which includes the day of extraction. What am I to do. Should I get a blood clotting test done? ( before or after stopping ecosprin?) Since clopact is for thinning blood, should I stop that too?

I am a 67 year old female. Have been on amoxicillin 500mg 3-times a day for nine days now for a tooth extraction and bone graft. Also, take niaspan 1500 mg a nite. And was on ibubrofen 3x500mg 3 times a day for 4 days. Been off that for 3 days now. Today my fecus was green. Not sure if it was due to the fresh herbs in the chicken last nite or to the amoxicillin. Is this dangerous?
