Can I Take A Tooth After Tetanus Immunization?
I want to ask, is it possible to extract molars after TT immunization? Is there a time interval for extracting molars after TT injection? Thank you

Immunization is a procedure for gaining immunity against certain germs. Immunizations are generally divided into two namely active immunization (vaccination) and passive immunization. In active immunization, inserted viruses or bacteria that have been weakened, to stimulate the body to form antibodies against these germs. Whereas in passive immunization the patient is given directly in the form of antibodies.
Therefore, immunization is generally safe to do for anyone, as long as the person is in a good body condition, not sick, or in a condition where the immune system is not good, because it can cause the formation of antibodies is not optimal, or can trigger symptoms infections, such as fever, pain throughout the body, etc.
On the other hand, a tooth extraction procedure can be categorized as a minor surgical procedure, which is performed both for medical reasons (certain diseases) and for cosmetic reasons. Contraindications to tooth extraction are when there is a local infection, there are systemic diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, and other conditions that can increase the risk of extraction.
Until now, no known effect or certain relationship between TT immunization and tooth extraction, so without other contraindications this procedure is safe to do. Do not hesitate to always consult matters relating to the actions to be taken to the dentist who handles you.
So, hopefully you can help.
