there's NO need to stop warfarin therapy before most dental surgery

Experts say there's NO need to stop warfarin therapy before most dental surgery...tooth extraction, gum surgery, etc.

Physicians and dentists used to stop warfarin a few days before dental surgery to reduce the risk of bleeding.

But the risk of serious bleeding is minimal when the patient's INR is in the desired therapeutic range...and any bleeding is usually controlled with pressure and other local measures.
