Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

1. Is it fine to undergo tooth extraction while taking Carvedilol tablets?

2. Do I need clearance from my cardiologist before tooth extraction?

Thank you.

Answered by Dr. Beryl F


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern.

Carvedilol tablets are used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. It has a certain amount of drug interaction with local anesthetics and other painkiller medications used during tooth extraction. You need a clearance and fitness letter from a cardiologist to proceed with dental extractions. Also, talk to your cardiologist about whether you need to stop your medications before extraction to avoid complications. He may prescribe you accordingly. Do not forget to mention your medical history to your dentist so he can plan on starting premedication (antibiotics course before extraction) to avoid post-extraction complications.

I hope I was helpful to you.

Thank you.
