Trigeminal Neuralgia dental implants

Posted by dandl48 Dave @dandl48, Mar 5 10:00am

My wife suffers from Trigeminal Neuralgia and she is concerned about getting a "Deep Cleaning" and 2 implants put in the side of her mouth thinking that the cleaning + drilling into her jaw will set the TN off. Has anyone with TN get a Deep Cleaning or had implants put in and what was the outcome of it?

Has your wife had any dental work since her TN or is this her first?

@amandajro Thanks for the links you supplied! Sorry it took so long to answer you. I do however have to stay at a Holiday Inn Express in order to understand all the medical terms used. Only kidding slightly.
