Do I need antibiotics before dental treatment?

It is a good idea for some people to receive antibiotics before dental procedures if an infection would be dangerous.

Key takeaways:

– Heart transplant recipients and those with an artificial heart valve or heart defect usually need antibiotics before any procedure where there is a risk of bacteria entering the bloodstream.

– If a heart valve gets infected with bacteria this results in a condition called infective endocarditis.

– Joint surgery patients may also require antibiotics before dental treatment.

“If you have doubts about whether or not you need antibiotics, ask your dentist!”
