I have a failed root canal and decayed wisdom tooth which need to be pulled :help:

I know diabetes exacerbates dental issues (where is the forum in the Health section?). What should I expect my dentist to recommend for pre and post removal? :afraid:

Since my T2 diagnosis, I am very aggressive with my dental care. I just need to resolve issues during my undiagnosed period.:(

I feel overwhelmed at times with this disease.

my opinion is that if your numbers are reasonable you should be fine. Your dentist would know more.

I had an extraction last fall. it went fine.

I had a couple of root canals and a decayed wisdom tooth pulled last summer. No problems!

I agree, if you have good control you should have no worries.
