Optimal Dental care for cardiac patients

Talk to your dentist, primary care physician and Cardiologist. Give your dentist complete list of names and dosages of all drugs you are taking for your heart disease. Give your dentist name and phone number of your Cardiologist in case they wish to or need to discuss about your condition. Ask your dentist if oxygen and nitroglycerin are available during your dental visit in case of emergency. Talk to your dentist about pain management during and after dental procedures including anesthetics and sedation. Visit your hygienist every three months for regular dental cleaning. Brush atleast two times per day.
Floss regularly. Some heart conditions may need antibiotic prophylaxis before some dental procedures. There are several heart conditions requiring different type of management by your hygienist and your dentist.
