To Stop or Not to Stop? Managing Your Blood Thinner When You Need a Dental Procedure
This month, we welcome Dr. Gregory Piazza for a patient primer on blood thinners and dental procedures. Dr. Piazza is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Director of Vascular Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and a longtime member of NATF’s Board of Directors.
In this webinar, Dr. Piazza discusses what to do if you’re on a blood thinner or antiplatelet agent (like aspirin) and need a dental procedure, provides guidance from the American Dental Association, and addresses when your dentist should consider contacting your anticoagulation prescriber.
