Is it safe to take Florastor (Sacc boulaardi) after wisdom tooth extraction, or will the yeast get into my bloodstream through the open wound?

Is it safe to take Florastor (Sacc boulaardi) after wisdom tooth extraction, or will the yeast get into my bloodstream through the open wound?

Capsule? Pill?: If Florastor is a capsule, like I suspect, then you shouldn't have any problems as long as you swallow the capsules whole (as they are meant to be). By swallowing the capsule intact, the yeast won't be released until the capsule coating gets dissolved, which occurs in the intestines (the stomach acid starts the process but the yeast is released in the small intestine). I think you'll be safe. GL! ...Read more

What is a wisdom tooth extraction? How is it performed?

A : A wisdom tooth extraction is an extraction of a third molar. It the farthest tooth back in the mouth both on the top and the bottom. Depending on how impacted the tooth is and angle the tooth formed at will determine if you are an able to have it out if say a lower third molar is enveloped with the nerve. Your tooth may need to be "cut in half", bone may need to be removed or it may be as simple as other teeht. Only a consultation with x-rays will determine how difficult it will be to extract. Most wisdom teeth can be extracted under local or sedation. It depends on your anxiety level and how much you want to know what is going on. It is also best to get all 4 wisdom teethout at once and heal at one time and not have to worry about it later in life. If you decide on sedation, you will need to discusss this with the surgeon to make sure you are medically fit to go under sedation.
Good luck! ...Read more
