I Was Due To Start Dunasumb 6 Monthly Injections…unfortunately Seen My Dentist And I Have An Infection After Having Teeth Out I. February….

A MyOsteoTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been given antibiotics and he advised me not to start the treatment until oral health is better. I’m now worried to start this tbh risks are scaring me. If someone could give me some encouragement as the dentist said ostencronosus can effect you with this treatment thank you Ingrid

Hi Ingipoos. Some dentists asks you to take a Prolia holiday for a few months before a dental procedure - not any simple one, such as filling.

I encourage you to give Prolia chance. I spoke with my dr and the Dentist and was reassured that ostencronosus Is very rare and that my condition outweighs the side effects. Talk to your Dr’s get as much information as you can, then decide what is best for your condition and your future. I hope this helps!

@A MyOsteoTeam Member. I am in the eighth year of twice yearly Prolia injections. Thank the Lord my teeth and facial bones are in good shape. I first took Forteo daily injections for 2 years when I was 52 after a big spinal fracture. Then received 2 yearly injections of Reclast IV. My treatments were not based on bone density scores. I had lousy family history on both sides, steroids for asthma and other factors- overweight, menopause in progress and arthritis of spine. 40 years of nursing took its toll too. Since starting Prolia after my second spinal fracture, I have not had anymore. Unfortunately no one can tell us if we will have a few expected side effects versus serious adverse reactions. Best of luck to you.

@A MyOsteoTeam Member, Hi, l have been on prolia injections for 7 years without much side effects.
If I don't have the injections I get more pain, as I tried to stop them last year. I have tried HRT , fosamax, actonel, calcium, vitamins, I have broken bones once since I started prolia, but early on. I still take vitamins C,D3,K2, magnesium, collagen & cod liver oil. I am stable now & am very careful not to fall.
Hope this helps. I am 78 & have had no teeth problems so far.
Cheers Josie D.

That’s very interesting to read…..I personally don’t want to start this treatment if I’m honest…unfortunately I can’t take alendronic acid..that’s why I had 4 zolodrenate infusion’s…and they haven’t helped..so they wanted me to start on prolia…how did you get this hormone treatment is it private or on the NHS? Thank you for your help with this …x
