Should I use antibiotics with an extraction if on steroid?

Posted by: darlene123  (5 years ago)
I had a mercury amalgam filling drilled out 4 years ago on tooth # 3 and replaced with a white filling. Have had severe health issues since I was severely mercury poisoned and I also have a genetic liver disorder which won't process toxins. Therefore I also have Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I am on a natural steroid (adrenal cortex extract) & thyroid support (armour) since my adrenals & thyroid crashed and damaged them from the mercury. 4 weeks ago had severe deferred pain and had root canal done on tooth # 3 and was on amoxicillin. And was on amoxicillin a couple weeks before that for a gum abcess in another area. Now I need to have tooth extracted. My question is: Should I go on antibiotics before or after the extraction? My holistic dentist said I don't need antibiotics, since they use ozone to sterilize the extraction site, unless they have to repair nasal cavity. I have a weak immune system and the steroid causes low immune. Also, what would be a better antibiotic since the amoxicillin did not totally clear up this infection, but is safe for people with sensitivity issues to medicines and supplements?

Quit reading garbage on the internet and going to quack dentist. I would probably premedicate with antibiotics unless you have a proven allergy.

Guess what? You probably had to have that root canal, and lose the tooth, as a result of your unwise decision to replace your silver amalgam fillings. Congratulations! Because of believing pseudoscience, you are losing your teeth.

Thanks for your reply, I did figure out that it is best for me to take antibiotics again for the extraction surgery since I do have a weak immune system. But my response to your negative response: Originally 4 years ago I was having issues with the tooth of sensitivity and pain and that is why the mercury filling was drilled out and replaced by a general dentist, and also he suspected the tooth was internally fractured. I did have a root canal a few weeks ago because of extreme differed pain and infection and there is 2 internal fractures and after the root canal it is still harboring infection and causing issues, therefore because of both reasons I am having to extract the tooth. Secondly, besides doing a lot of research to figure out the root cause of my extreme health issues which occurred rapidly after the mercury filling drilled out, I have also seen a lot of doctors and had a lot of testing, and it has been confirmed that the mercury toxins caused a lot of permanent damage and a long list of health issues 4 years ago after having the mercury filling drilled out in conjunction with having a genetic liver disorder which won't process toxins toxins properly. The good news is, that I am now going to a biological dentist who follows a very strict protocol of removing mercury fillings and treats it like the extreme poison that it is. A couple weeks ago I had another tooth which was causing issues and they properly removed the mercury filling and it did not cause any new health issues or regress my health. It is upsetting when doctors and dentists think they know everything and are just ignorant to what is really happening. MERCURY SILVER AMALGAM FILLINGS are TOXIC!!!!

What is a "biological" dentist? We all took many biology courses before dental school and in dental school. Did you perhaps mean a "quack" dentist?

If silver amalgams are so toxic, how is it that my assistant and I, who do them all day, are not deathly ill? Most all of the mercury release occurs when they are taken out and put in. And this amount is trivial when a rubber dam is used!

Please present to the forum the biologic evidence that the silver filling removal caused "a lot of chemical damage." Have you had punch biopsies of your organs?

You say you are doing research. Where is your scientific laboratory, and what instruments do you have in it? Or when you said you "did research," did you perhaps mean you read a lot of scurrilous information on the worldwide web?

Did you have a question for this forum, or were you just looking for a place to spread your nonsensical, psuedoscientific beliefs?
