Perform Tartar Cleaning A Month After Eye Lasik Surgery?
Hello, I want to ask after lasik surgery a month after that, can I do dental scaling or minor dental surgery? thanks.
Thank you for the question.
LASIK surgery (laser in-situ keratomileusis) is an operation performed using a laser beam to improve the shape of the cornea of the eye. In this way, it is hoped that the light passing through the cornea can be captured perfectly, so that the shadow can fall right on the retina, and the vision will appear more clearly. This operation is often performed on patients with eye refraction disorders, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
After LASIK surgery, you are generally allowed to act as usual after 2-4 weeks. As for your question, as long as there are medical indications that require it, it is not prohibited to perform dental scaling and surgery around the teeth 1 month after LASIK surgery. However, this consideration is only appropriate for the dentist who is examining you directly. Therefore, consult directly with him ..
I hope this helps.
