Do I need to take an antibiotic before a dental procedure or cleaning?


If you have an artificial joint or have any heart conditions such as a heart murmur or mitral valve prolapse, etc., be sure to let your dentist know! These may not seem like they'd have any connection to having a dental cleaning or procedure done, but there are certain conditions that are associated with having a high risk for infection. Bacterial infections such as infective endocarditis are very real and should not be taken lightly!
