Blood pressure high with palpitations
I went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned this dentist does its kind of like the deep cleaning but i just wanted a regular cleaning not one of those cleans where they go under the gums. they took my blood pressure and it was high they said that they could not do the cleaning because of my blood pressure being high I was also having palpitations with this too
I am getting tired of my blood pressure being up and down with palpitations
@susaan-0 Do you have high blood pressure routinely or it was only occasional at that time? If high BP is a routine issue, you should see an MD physician at the earliest to find out the root cause of the same.
Studies have demonstrated increased sympathetic activity (increased blood pressure, heart rate, and arrhythmia) in patients before any dental procedures (including administration of local anesthetics) reflecting fear and anxiety and the effects of endogenous adrenaline in response to these feelings. Avoid drinking caffeine or other stimulating drinks before going for dental appointments. I also read many people practice taking antibiotics before going to the dentist for any procedure, including regular cleaning. However, I am not really sure about this one. Better to get it confirmed with your GP.
