How well do my fellow TNers handle dental work?
Trigeminal Neuralgia (TGN)
I always tell my dentist if I’m in a flare and he will cover my affected side teeth with gauze and try to avoid using cold water or air on it. If I’m really in pain, I reshedule
I reschedule. My dentist actually started me on the path to finding my diagnosis. I thought I had teeth problems and allergies.
Yep I reschedule too if I’m in a flare and then if I’m not I always inform the dentist before any procedure.
I have pulled 4 teeth thinking it was dental issues when it was really a flare up. Ive started to just avoid the dentist all together, not a great strategy
