MTF - HRT and Tooth Extraction
« on: May 29, 2018, 10:49:17 pm »
Hey I was just wondering if is it safe to get a tooth extracted whilst on Estragon, My main concern would be the healing process with the blood clot in socket and developing dry sock!, I have just recently started my HRT too :), Thanks <3

Hi Freyja 🙋‍♀️ Welcome to Susan’s Place!  I’m Jessica.
That’s a good question, I think you should ask your dentist.  They actually should know what you are taking, especially if your undergoing a procedure. I only recently told mine and she was thankful and supportive.
I see your new here, so I’ll post some links that may help you get better acquainted with the site. Pay attention to the site rules they can be of great help and don’t forget the link highlighted red.  It has answers to questions that are commonly asked.  Then join in on a topic you find interesting and learn and share.

Please feel free to stop by the Introductions Forum to tell the members about yourself!

I'd ask your doc but really clotting shouldn't be impaired unless you're on a blood thinner.  That being said a concern is if you are on Alendronate NA / Fosamax (for osteopenia/porosis) and have dental extractions or implants.  Specifically jaw necrosis is a concern, and they do NOT want to do implants or extractions if you're on that.
