In brief: AHA Guidelines

The aha (american heart association) has the latest guidelines for antibiotic prophylaxis to help prevent subacute bacterial endocarditis.
The indications for premedication underwent revision and changed several years ago, and most dentists and surgeons follow the aha guidelines.

In brief: Premedicate before

Any invasive dental procedure should have a premeditated note on it if.
..You need to premedicate. Ask your M.D. Then tell your dentist. Nowadays a single dose 1hour prior to an appt. Is given. But...Your M.D. May have other guidelines. Remember...Use antibiotics sparingly and only when needed, so they'll work well when you really do need them. Earl.
