Your surgeon will let you know if this is necessary. Before you have any dental work or surgery done, let your dentist know you have had spine surgery. </p><h2>Airport security</h2><p>In these times, airport security is especially strict. It is very unlikely that the security detector will sound off when you go through it. If it does, just explain that you have had back surgery and that you have a spinal implant attached to your spinal column.</p>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/who_else_needs_to_know.jpg
