I’ll be seeing the dentist in July. They have me scheduled for cleanings three times a year instead of the typical two. My dentist wants to keep the bacteria in my mouth under control, since I have an immune system that’s not up to speed. She’s also going to have me take some kind of antibiotic before the cleaning, so the bacteria won’t infect me if it gets into my blood stream as a result of the cleaning.
I think the coumadin must be doing its job. I noticed tonight that my gums bleed pretty freely when I floss now.
