Can I undergo tooth surgery if I have high BP and diabetes?
Q: I am 38 years old. My lower molars are growing horizontally and are penetrating into the neighbouring molars. I have been advised surgery. I have high BP and type 2 diabetes for the past 7 years. What should I do?
A:You need to consult an experienced Dental Surgeon or an Oral Surgeon to get your wisdom tooth removed. If it is giving you problems, it is advisable to get it out. However, please get yourself examined first. Controlled diabetes and hypertension should not pose any problem in its treatment. The problem is quite common and routinely handled in hospitals and most dental clinics.
