Joint Replacement and Antibiotics

Joint Replacement and Antibiotics

Newsletter for September, 2013

Dear Patients,

“A friend is someone who knows all about you, and still loves you.” Elbert Hubbard

On December 7, 2012 The American Academy of Oral Surgeons(AAOS) and the American Dental Association(ADA) approved new clinical practice guidelines on the “Prevention of orthopaedic implant infections in patients undergoing Dental procedures.” The recommendation from the panel proposed that clinicians reconsider the longstanding practice of routinely prescribing antibiotics for patients with orthopaedic implants who undergo dental procedures. This new guideline was based on research that examined a large group of patients, all having a prosthetic hip or knee, and half with an infected prosthetic joint. The limited research study suggested that invasive dental procedures, with or without antibiotics, had no effect on the likelihood of developing a periprosthetic joint infection.

Should you or someone you love have questions regarding a joint replacement, contact our office for a complimentary consultation.

Sincerely,

Michael W. Dagostino, DDS
