Patients with renal failure may require special precautions during dental treatment. Drugs must be administered with caution and patients undergoing haemodialysis must receive special consideration. Both haemodialysis and transplant patients need to be protected against infection. This is achieved by regular dental treatment. The use of antibiotics during dental treatment is required in transplant patients and is often necessary in haemodialysis patients to protect them against bacterial infection.
If you have a low income, you may be able to get help with NHS costs through the NHS Low Income Scheme (LIS).
