I am having them all pulled in 10 days...would dead teeth cause infection to be in blood, I am on antibitotic and white count went down, doc says it just keeping infection down, I still feel sick.
Ok, so you think I would feel sick till the remove the teeth? Would being on long term antibiotic and steroids, suppress an infection and allow the teeth to die?
Ok, sorry, so you disagree, you don't think steroids and antibiotics that I have been on constantly for years would cover an infection, and mask it? 2 dentists have said it could?
I am sorry but I am not understanding-I have been on steroids and antibiotics for 10 years, my doctor and dentist's think the teeth died slowly, while I have been on these drugs, and the drugs masked and treated the infection enough, but the teeth eventually died- do you not agree that that could happen?
I understand I have to lose my teeth. I have said that. I am asking if they could have died the way I asked, it is very odd to go in and have 4-5 teeth with no response to cold or electric, so I am just asking if it seems teeth could die while on long term steroids and abkitobitocs??
Ok, would I feel sick during that time too, like when they were dying?
You have repeated the same answer to me, and not been very good at explain or saying what is normal and what is not. When someone is facing losing all there teeth it would be nice to explain and try to make someone understand your answer and not have to have them re ask it over and over.
Thank you, ***** ***** think long term steroid and antibiotics would mask the infections and let teeth die slowly, I am down to 10 mg of steroids, from 30-40 for years for lupus and sjogrens. I am doing program for my bones, but I started feeling very sick, with high white count and fever and my tooth started aching, then the endo tested and said like 4-5 teeth are dead. So you think I would have felt sick during the time infections was masked because bacteria was seeping into blood and still sick, because dead teeth release bacteria?
Yes I know I have had sjogrens, very aggressive since I was 30, now I am 52, and have had many lost teeth and issues over the years.
My ??? is
-Do you think those drugs could have masked infections and allowed teeth to die? I mean I have not felt great for a few years and now much worse, like an active infection is happening and my white count and fever started so they put me on different antibiotics, since I had been on the other for 10 years and they said it prob does not work anymore.
And dead teeth would make me sick, do they all make people sick?
can they not be infected? they said dead teeth produce bacteria.
so dead teeth don't produce bacteria? I am confused the said they did?
They said the dead teeth cause bacteria and assesses, are you a doctor?
They said the dead teeth cause bacteria and abbsesses, are you a doctor?
I am sorry you think an endo doc and dentist and my doctor are all wrong that dead teeth harbor infections?
you said the bacteria come from my mouth not the dead teeth?
oh I see so that can go in there and not live teeth?
I see so they give them a place to dwell?
Got it I understand now, sorry, thanks
