I am having my front 2 teeth pulled tomorrow but had botox this morning. Is it safe to get teeth pulled? (photo)

A dog jumped up & my jaw slammed closed & my teeth hit so hard that it cracked two front teeth. I had botox this morning before this happened. Dentist wants to pull the teeth tomorrow. The dentist put temps over broken teeth til tomorrow's extractions. Im nervous that botox done 1 day before may get in my blood system & give me bells palsey or something scary like death. Is it ok to get the teeth pulled after botox the day prior? Please help.

Sorry to hear about your dental problem.  The good news is, you don't have to worry about the Botox.  Go ahead and have your dental issues taken care of.

All the best,

This should not create a problem but, to be sure, ask your injector. At a minimum, you can request that your dentist not place pressure on the areas where your Botox was injected. I hope this information is helpful for you.
