@crepassNever heard of that, and I am the queen of dental work- crowns, bridges, implants etc.. With MAC you are only infectious to yourself. Many have suggested it is the water in dentist offices that is a “way in” for mycobacterium especially with invasive types of dental work. I would be interested in knowing why your dentist wants to wait. That is odd to me. (Irene5)

I just told him I might have an infection(after ct scan). He said to wait and get definitive diagnosis before finishing crown. I’ll call him and try again now that the pulmonologist has said MAC. I’m not on antibiotics yet. He is still trying to get a “deep?” Sputum sample. By hydration , doxycycline, and bronchodilators for next 2 weeks. Hope it works . The pulmonologist also said it’s a “light” case of MAC. Is that a thing? Sorry so many questions. I appreciate your replies.
