Q.

Kroon met abses

Hallo dokter,

Net kortliks: ek het Mitraalklep-herstel gehad 2008 (Annuluplasty ring in sy plek).

Ek was gister by Tandarts (het ' n broodjie gehap en toe kom my hele kroon los). Die Tandarts het xrays geneem en gese dat hy kroon tydelik gaan terug sit, maar dat dit nie goed lyk nie. Ek kry kort-kort ' n abses lanks die tandvleis van daardie tand en nou wil Tandarts die hele tand trek, aangesien die xrays wys daar is infeksie wat nie sal weg gaan nie.

Moet ek die tand laat trek en inplantaat laat doen? Dit klink na ' n storie, want hy sal die tand moet trek en 4 maande later eers inplantaat en ek wil nie tand laat trek nie?

Sal ek enige risiko loop as ek tand net los soos dit is? ek is bang vir Endocarditis...

leaving the tooth with an abscess increases the risk on endocarditis. discuss extraction and implant options with your dentist. you will need antibiotic cover for the procedure. Have your dentist liase with your cardiologist to allay your fears
