I need to have a dental implant done.
The Oral surgeon that my dentist recommended has never done one on a Type 1 diabetic before,
I find this concerning, since I know I am prone to infection at the very least. I also know that type 1 diabetics sometimes do not tolerate sedation well either.
Does anyone know if there is a special kind of dentist, meaning someone with some kind of letters after hid or her name that could indicate that they are trained to deal with diabetics?
Surely I am no the only one here who has had one or needs one.
I'm in the Los Angeles/ Ventura California area if anyone knows someone a really good that I should be sure to call.
I've already contacted three, all who tell me that no one has ever asked them about diabetes and imlants before,
Am I just insane? That seems impossible to me.
