Wisdom teeth and Entyvio

Hello. My 19 year old son is scheduled to have his wisdom teeth taken out on January 6, 2020. He was just diagnosed with Crohn’s disease three weeks ago and is now taking Cipro and prednisone and starts Entyvio next week. Does anyone have any experience with being on all these medications and having oral surgery? I am thinking we should put it off until the summer, but he is wanting to get it done. Thank you!

I am pretty sure Entyvio and Cipro ewouldnt cause an issue. My Daughter had hip surgery on Remicade and that drug is a lot more "immune suppressing" than Entyvio. Prednisone might be a bigger issue though. I would definitely ask the oral surgeon about all three though.

FWIW my daughter did not get an infection with wisdom tooth extraction but two of her non crohnie friends did. Seems to happen pretty frequently so I would ask and not take any chances.

I don't have such experience, but I think at this moment the only persons you should listen to is the doctor and the dentist. I mean, nobody here is a specialist who can take responsibility for the advice he wants to give you. I also had a lot of tooth problems. The teeth were crooked, but I did not want to wear metallic braces, and I was afraid to go to the dentist, but thankfully I found out that there is another option. There are aligners, that are almost like braces, but at the same time are invisible and the most important is that aligners are non-metallic. If you want to find more information about this subject, then you can check tallah.com. Stay safe and have a wonderful day!

I am not a professional in this field, but I will recommend you to consult a dentist. He will definitely know how to help you. The situation you've described looks pretty awful, so I would not ask for help on a forum if I were you. I don't want to offend anybody, but I am sure that you won't find a dentist here. I can recommend to you the dental clinic whose services I am using right now. Here it is https://perfectasmile.com/. Hope your son's surgery will go well. Wish you the best of luck, my friend
