Dental work and medicine - actenol
I am 72 years old and and have been prescribed Actenol by my orthopedic surgeon. I also have serious dental problems and need extensive dental work done. I have read that you should not take Actenol (by the blurb that comes with the meds)if you are going to have dental work done. Are you aware of this problem? Thank you.
Actonel does not have any contraindication for dental treatment, as long as you are not having any possible side effects such as:
- trouble swallowing
- pain in the jaw articulation
- or pain in the muscles of the neck and face.
Rarely it may cause delay in healing or infection after tooth extraction.
