Can Scaling In Patients With Trigeminal Neuralgia?
I want to ask. Is it safe for patients with trigeminal neuralgia (facial nerve disorders) for scaling? I once suffered from trigeminal neuralgia, but 6 months ago had undergone MVD (nerve surgery by attaching Teflon between facial nerves attached to blood vessels). I was hit by trigeminal one of the effects always felt extreme pain when I brushed my teeth so now I have a lot of plaque because my toothbrush was not right at that time. Can I scaling? Can the anesthetics used when scaling can have a negative impact on nerves? my face is guessed? Thank you doctor
Hello Priscilla, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Based on research, anesthesia performed for any procedure on the tooth, including scaling, allows for the recurrence of pain in patients with trigeminal neuralgia. To find out if you are allowed to do scaling or not, is there a safer way to scaling your teeth, you should first consult about your disease history with your dentist before doing the scaling procedure.
I hope this helps.
