Dentist For ICD

Hi everyone. Just got my second icd (battery change) about 2 months ago. The first one was great, hardly ever felt it. This one is just under the skin, very visible battery and leads etc. I am trying to keep my morale high, and tolerate the pain as well, hopefully it will get better in time(that is what doctors are saying atm)

in any case, I need to go to the dentist for a filling or possibly root canal asap. Most of the previous posts I have found are related to pacemakers. Are there any issues that I need to know for ICD? Thank you all very much

Just make sure they have your health history. They do not normally need to do anything different for us. Same rules as pacemaker.

Yesterday I moved to a new place in my mind and realized how bad I felt 'before' and the difference my pacemaker has made.
