Question:
Hi, I have a 5 year old boy who has seizures and he needs some dental work. His 2 front teeth are really bad and they are broke off. A friend of mine told me, who isn't a dentist by the way, that a dentist would probably not work on them because of the seizures. Is this true? He takes vaproic acid for the seizures. If they put him to sleep would this be safe? ...Carol

Answer:
Carol, yes, a dentist will see your son. Just because he has seizures, does not mean that we will not see him. As long as the seizures are under control with medication, there is really no problem with treating him. If you have concerns, contact your physician prior to his appointment to make sure that all is well. I see seizure patients often and have yet to have a problem. I hope this has helped.
