Is it advisable to extract the front teeth of patients with epilepsy/seizures?

Is it advisable to extract the front teeth of patients with epilepsy/seizures?

No: They still need to function and they still need to maintain confidence they already have a compromised life style, I don't think it has to be compounded.

If you have periodontal decay with an abscess tooth, is it possible cause for seizures?

If you have periodontal decay with an abscess tooth, is it possible cause for seizures?

Hard to say...: Periodontal disease and a tooth abscess have a common factor, in that they both involve a bacterial infection that challenges the host's immune response. Seizures tend to be a problem with the nervous system. I am not aware that a direct link of oral infection to seizures has been identified. I do believe that good "whole-body" health should include a healthy mouth - seek the care of a dentist. ...Read more

I got my bottom left wisdom tooth and the tooth next to itextracted, two weeks ago. Now, sometimes in my sleep, I bite the side of my tongue. Could they be seizures?

I got my bottom left wisdom tooth and the tooth next to itextracted, two weeks ago. Now, sometimes in my sleep, I bite the side of my tongue. Could they be seizures?

Unlikely: Most likely is that your tongue has not yet accommodated to the changes in tooth position in your mouth since the extractions. If the problem does not resolve sometimes your dentist might adjust you're teeth (you're bite" to solve the problem or fabricate a night-guard for you to wear at night. You may ask your doctor or dentist about seizures but based just on the info you posted I think not. ...Read more

I've been seizures free for 4years but still on medication until now. Is there any risk of inhaling prosthetic crown for my rct molar tooth?

I've been seizures free for 4years but still on medication until now. Is there any risk of inhaling prosthetic crown for my rct molar tooth?

Highly unlikely: If your dentist takes appropriate precautions, it is highly unlikely that you would swallow your crown during the placement procedure, even if you were to have a seizure. Once in place, it is not meant to come off easily so there is no fear of swallowing it afterwards. A crown will only fall off by itself if something is really wrong, so make sure you keep up with your routine visits. ...Read more

If I have panic attacks thinking about seizures would I freak out with laughing gas for pulling a wisdom tooth?

If I have panic attacks thinking about seizures would I freak out with laughing gas for pulling a wisdom tooth?

Gas is safe: Laughing gas is safe and will not cause seizures. Talk to the oral surgeon about a sedative to take the night before the extraction. This may help so you do not think about it too much. Anything else you can do to relax such as meditation, massage, will help you. But not alcohol.
Have you had any treatment for your pa oc attacks? Consider this also. ...Read more

Has anyone heard of silver fillings in a child's mouth causing seizures or brain damage?
