Can I go for tooth extraction?
Q: I am 57 years old. I had a bypass surgery four months back. I am taking Deplatt and Aspirin (daily one tablet). Now, my wisdom tooth has a problem and needs to be extracted. Can I go for tooth extraction while I am taking the above-mentioned medicines? Is it risky? What precautions need to be taken?
A:Both the drugs you are taking make the blood thinner and can lead to bleeding. Hence, you will need to discontinue the medicines for a while before you go in for tooth extraction.
