Accutane and Wisdom teeth extraction

Recommended Posts

Hey

I just started my accutane journey yesterday (40mg/day)

and i realized that i have to remove my wisdom teeth 4 days from today.

i asked my family doctor (he prescribed me accutane) if it was okay and he said it should be okay.. but i wanted to ask you guys..

is it okay to extract wisdom teeth while on accutane?

i guess i shoudln't worry too much because i just started on accutane.

let me know!

Just make sure if they give you a antibotic afterwards that it is not a tetracycline. That would not be good. Also sometimes Accutane causes slow wound healing, but if you only been on it for 4 days you should be fine.

Good Luck

yeah i had major sinus surgery to remove a wisdom tooth while on accutane. the sides of your mouth are going to be SUPER stretched and raw but nothing that a good moisturizer can't handle.

good luck!

so what are the antibiotics that i shouldn't be taking after the extraction?

i hear that anything that ends with "cline" will interact with accutane.

are there any other antibiotics that i can take? because i'm scared of the infections
