​Heart Association Recommendations
Before consulting with your dentist, consider the following:
Do you take antibiotics before you visit the dentist?
-The American Heart Association (AHA) now  recommends that only patients at the greatest risk from IE (infectious endocarditis) should take preventive antibiotics. 
-Heart conditions include ventricular septal defects and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

According to the AHA, prophylatic antibiotics are no longer needed before a dental visit for individuals with the following: 
1) Mitral valve prolapse
2) Rheumatic heart disease
3) Bicuspid valve disease
4) Calcified aortic stenosis
5) Congential (present from birth)
Please contact your physician to be certain of your need to be premedicated before visiting your dentist.
