Infusion has been offered but comes with doctor desire to extract all my teeth since i am 67 years old and death from infection to jaw bones is a side effect. Should i pull all my teeth?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

I'm not sure what you mean by infusion is offered? You mean for treatment of osteoporosis? There is some risk to the jaw if taking medication for osteoporosis especially if you were to have oral surgery. That said, there is no reason to pull healthy teeth. If your teeth are unsavable, that is a different story. I would schedule an appointment with your dentist to find out the condition of your teeth.
