Extractions: Extractions are a surgical procedure. Abscessed teeth are infected. Harder for diabetic to heal. ALL practitioners should be made aware of medical history and medications before any treatment. If there are post-treatment complications patient should return immediately to practitioner. Important that diabetes be strictly controlled.
