DENTAL CARE

Why does your child need dental care before and after kidney transplant?

The mouth has a large number bacteria in it. The use of transplant medications after transplantation makes it harder for the body to fight infection. A bad dental cavity may turn into a tooth abcess if the immune system is low. Some of the drugs used after transplant, may cause gum swelling  and overgrowth. This, in turn can lead to gum disease. It is important for your child to be seen by a dentist before transplant. Have your child’s  teeth cleaned and all cavities filled. Following transplant, twice-yearly dental  visits with cleanings are recommended.
