Can I Visit My Dentist After Surgery?

Play Video about Visiting the dentist after spinal surgery in St. Clairsville, Ohio.


Hello, I’m Dr. Derek Snook.

As far as concerns with the dentist, there are no active concerns with patients who have had spinal surgery and had spinal implants and the risk of an infection when visiting their dentist. 

Therefore, we do not recommend any antibiotic prophylaxis for patients who have had spine surgery, in particular spine fusion.

If you would like to know more about how your surgery will take place, contact us at JIS Orthopedics. Our specialists in New Albany and St. Clairsville, Ohio, can give you the answers you are looking for. Schedule a visit with us today!
