    Metformin and dental work

    I am T2, dx in June of this year, with pretty good control. I am on Metformin, 500 mg twice daily.
    I am scheduled to have a root canal redone in a few days. I recently ran across instructions to stop Metformin two days before oral surgery. Does anybody have experience with this? I know Metformin takes awhile to ramp up. Do I need to eat really carefully during those two days? (I don't, usually, I'm afraid.) Or, is there gonna be enogh carryover during that time to keep me more or less out of trouble?

    Bob, i've had my teeth clean ?? 4 times since being on metformin, and i've had a filling done
    a root canal isn't really oral surgery...... the dentist cleans out the dead root/nerves in your tooth, then preps the tooth for a filling or a cap
    it is important that you tell your dentist that you have diabetes
    give his office a call and see if you need to stop the met before the root canal (i only know that contrast dye scans require you to stop the met)

    My husbnd is T2 and he just had a root canal done and is on 2000 mg and he never stopped his. I would for sure tell the dentist, I would imagine if you stopped taking it ,it would knock you into highs and thats not good.
