I have not heard that a person with Crohn's needs antibiotics for routine dental care. If a person is on immunosuppressants, and the dental work might lead to infection, then I could understand the pre-medication.
My dentist and gI said I do not need antibiotics for dental care even when I was on Remicade and Imuran. In fact my GI doesn't want me on antibiotics unless absolutely necessary.
I would check with your GI and then get a note for the dentist providing instructions about
premedications if necessary.
