    I have a mitral valve prolapse and they used to give me antibiotics prior to cleaning but the latest (as of several years now)American Heart Assoc recommendations are to not prescribe them for at least my issue.

    No need to be rude. I did read the thread. And stating that it's only a concern for people with a joint replacement is wrong in my opinion.

    I wanted to know why dental cleanings were such a burden on your immune system, that caused some to need antibiotics.

    The original question was whether it was standard practice to prescribe antibiotics for dental work after someone had had a joint replacement. The answer was yes. There was nothing brought up about it being standard practice for everyone. That is why I asked if you has read the thread. Period

    Lynna, why so confrontational? No need for that level of rudeness in response to a simple question.

    Bosnic, roodz answered your question:

    You're under the assumption that people with a knee replacement receive some sort of genetic mutation that makes them different than everyone else.

    The pathways are identical, dental work is a burden on your immune system FOR EVERYONE. Stop trying to prevent people from learning, and take a step back.

    @roodz Thank you.
