... couple of months, wait for mouth to heal, and then have the 2 shot?
An interesting question, I will be interested to read any answers.
I am 79 and two days in on my Prolia injection, I have been putting it off for fear of side effects!! however I "bit the bullet" so there I am.
I have had two prolia shots. The last one was March 2017. Went to my dentist in October 2017. Had 2 teeth capped. Also, needed a back tooth pulled. Was sent to a dental surgeon. Would not touch me. Said to have the tooth packed and try living with it as long as possible. He also said that one of his patients had been off of prolia for 4 and 1/2 years. Had a tooth pulled. He ended up with the condition caused by prolia that no one wants. Now my tooth is starting to hurt and sores breaking out on the inside of my cheek. The old thing of ""between a rock and a hard spot.
I needed dental surgery for an infection in the root canal. When I told my surgeon that I had had one Prolia injection 4.5 years ago, she was very wary of operating on me, but the surgery was necessary and she did do the surgery. Everything went well. I do not remember ANY warnings about dental work when I got the injection. And I didn't ask her if that meant that any surgery could be a problem. Maybe it was.
I have had 4 Prolia shots last year. I needed a tooth pulled so they sent me to a surgeon. I had the tooth pulled and had no problems.
I also have been on Prolia for some time. Within the past 2 months I had a dental extraction via oral surgery. My oral surgeon was aware that I was on Prolia and asked about when I received my most recent injection. Since it had been approximately 5 months, he proceeded with the extraction and then advised my endocrinologist accordingly. Basically, my Prolia injection was delayed about a month until my mouth healed. So I would suggest having your medical provider be in contact with your dental provider and proceed accordingly. For most, dental procedures should not be a big deal.
