Dental Care post TKR
After my successful TKR at Mayo Clinic JAX in April I was very concerned about infection when I had to have a tooth removed 8 weeks post-op and another at 12 weeks. Now at 16 weeks with no apparent problem. Both times followed Mayo protocol of 2000 mg amoxicillin prior and then dentist/oral surgeon prescribed 1500- 2000 mg daily for next seven days.
Thought worthwhile to share as others may encounter dental problems.
