Hello,Thank you for your question.I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.Since when are you having this infection?
Which oral surgery are you going to have?
When did you consult doctor?
Which treatment are you getting?
If the infection is coming from the teeth that are going to be extracted, than I would continue with the extractions,which will eliminate the source of the infections. I would have you wait on having the implants placed until the infection is under control. If the infection is not in the area of the extractions, than I would wait on getting the extractions until this new infected area is under control. Otherwise you are going to have multiple areas in your mouth that are uncomfortable and it will be difficult to eat.
Do you have any other questions?
I see that you opted out of the previous discussion.
What question remains for you?
