Dental Procedures and Antibiotics-Good News!

I am one of those people who is required to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to dental procedures, and I recently disovered that it may no longer be necessary! I was told this by my dentist, so I went online to research it and found an article on the topic that confirmed what he had told me. There is a listing of conditions that were previously thought to increase the risk of infective endocarditis in certain people. Click here for the link to the list. And remember, always check with your family physician to make sure that it is right for you!
