i have been taking fosamax for the last six months and now i need to have a tooth filled is it safe?
I have been getting either Zometa infusions or taking Fosamax for 9 years. I have had teeth pulled, crowns and bridges done, fillings, and for the past year I have had braces. Just a note: tooth extractions should be done by an oral surgeon. I have had no problems. Ask your dentist if you should take a dose of antibiotics prior to the dental work. Some dentists insist on it, others don't. Hope this helps.
