i have read that you need to speak to your dr before having dental work-my daughter is coming home this week after being in london since january she was told that her wisdom teeth need to come out and they are pushing her teeth forward-she wants to get the invisible braces - i have emailed the gastro about this but haven't heard back yet -over a week- but i'm wondering if anyone knows about the teeth extractions and uc-also anyone wearing the inivisiline braces?
she wants me to set up all of these appointments.
thanks for any help

She shouldn't have any complications from either widsom teeth extraction or from the Invisalign braces. I had my wisdom teeth out a couple years ago even while being on an immune suppressor and I had no issues at all.

I think it might be concerns with antibiotics. She should take probiotics if they prescribe them as a routine.

Also, I was told that with the immune suppressents that it's best to have dental work just before the next infusion/shot because your immune system would be strongest then.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering. Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; used prednisone & Rowasa for flares. 
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed wheat/gluten, other intolerances; eliminated wheat/gluten from my diet. Probiotics (Ultimate Flora, 50 billion). 
Bad flare in March, used prednisone. Humira denied, started Remicade 4/12 and doing great~

If I was told to take antibiotics for dental work, i'd get second and third opinions in case the dental surgeon is just antibiotic happy, as some are. "Preventive" antibiotics gave me a huge flare a couple years back which to this day has never 100% entered remission, and this even while concurrently taking probiotics and ending the antibiotics after two days due to the flaring effect. Now when I get any dental surgery I will just be ultra hygienic and ignore any antibiotic instructions.
Pancolitis >20 years, allergic to all 5ASAs
Tried everything under the sun (natural and alternative)
Some partial success with TSO but was too expensive to keep up 
Remicade Humira, lots of probiotics, entocort, tapering pred again, maybe surgery this year

I doubt that she would need antibiotics for wisdom teeth extraction. Rinsing afterward with warm salt water is the usual procedure, and salt is nature's disinfectant. Probably your daughter should 1st have a check-up by her regular dentist before you schedule any orthodontics. It's likely that extraction of the wisdom teeth alone will solve any other tooth problems caused by "pushing". Not surprised that you haven't heard from gastro re this situation. I'd say have your daughter relax a bit on her return from London & adapt to time zone change rather than rush off to medical/dental appointments. But, hey, she made it o.k. thru semester abroad-- another goal reached-- so congratulations are in order! / Old Hat (30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])

What I don't understand is why dentists/oral surgeons will prescribe oral antibiotics to a Uc patient. I have had 4 wisdom teeth extracted at seperate times and each time they gave me an antibiotic rinse. Nothing was ingested. Maybe that is why I had no troubles. So if she has to use an antibiotic, look into the rinse instead.
