|Comment||Thank you, Dr. Teig. I had the tooth extracted today. I didn't get your' answer till today, so I went ahead and took the ADA recommended "hip replacement" prophylactic dose of 2g Amoxicillin 1 hour before dental work. The Dentist was happy with that, but questioned the ADA literature I found recommending the prophylactic dose for lifetime , as opposed to only two years after surgery. Thank you again.|
