T cells after tooth extraction
Mar 30, 2013
I got two teeth extracted on March 27 and the dentist prescribed Amoxicillin. I have a doctor visit to check my T cell count on April 3. Will the tooth extraction artificially lower my T cell count (my T cells are around 100)? Should I reschedule for later in April or even wait until May to get the blood test?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Depends. You don't indicate whether you are on HIV treatment, or the tooth was pulled because of some ongoing infection. Regardless, I would probably wait until the end of April.
