Always make sure that your dentist is aware of your medical condition. However, it is now no longer considered necessary for people that have a heart complaint, heart murmur or rheumatic fever to receive an antibiotic cover one hour prior to dental treatment such as, a tooth extraction or scale and polish. The dentist may also choose to use a different kind of local anaesthetic (without adrenalin).
