Do you tell your dentist you have CD?
I have an apt tonight and I am not sure if there is anything that he needs to know?
So do you tell yours? I don’t know if my Imuran or other meds could cause a problem…..
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 On 150mg Azathioprine (generic Imuran), Pentasa, & Entocort (take zofran for nausea now)
Diagnosed w/ Fibromyalgia May 2007 also on Soma
Also have Arthritis, and feel like I am falling apart sometimes...
I tell my dentist because dentists like to prescribe antibiotics and/or tell you to take ibuprofen, either of which can cause problems for Crohns.
I hope your dentist is gentle!!! Good luck!
I know that it's important to tell them. I was on Prednisone over a year ago, and they wanted a certain amount of time to go by once I was off of it before they'd clean my teeth. I also had wanted them to know about my mouth sores to confirm that they were from my cd, not from a lack of oral care. I love my dental office they are very caring, they always ask how my "guts" are doing. Make sure that you make them aware of what prescriptions you are on for sure.
