Tooth Extraction In People With Autoimmune Diseases.?
In the morning, I have a GBS patient for about one year. I have started to be able to walk and my hands have started to move smoothly. Finally, I have a toothache because of my cavities.
Hello, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Guillain Barre syndrome is a fairly rare autoimmune disease that attacks the nervous system. It starts with tingling and leg pain and spreads to the top, so that the breathing muscles can also be affected.
Some sources say GBS patients should not be given lidocaine (one of the sodium canal / sodium blocker anesthetic agents), because it is neurotoxic and can cause an exacerbation / recurrence of the return of autoimmune diseases involving nerves such as GBS.
In addition, if during the GBS treatment you get high-dose steroid drugs, have a higher risk of infection and wound healing for longer, therefore, the drugs you get should also be consulted by your dentist, and may be able to become dentist's consideration for prophylactic antibiotics (prevention of infection) before the procedure is performed.
It is recommended that you consult with a neurologist who diagnosed you with GBS before undergoing a dental procedure.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful.
