I have a cyst on my upper jaw at the front. I saw a Maxillofacial surgeon yesterday who said best thing was to remove the tooth, remove the cyst and take away nearby tissue and scrape the bone to make sure they got rid of it. So this is reasonably major dental work.
He said that he would not stop my Apixaban at all, and there would be a blood test just a few hours before the procedure. And he has also allowed an extra 1/2 hour for procedure because of the Apixaban. The blood test is not the one they do for Warfarin, he said, but another one. I didn't ask any further about this.
I was just wondering who else has had fairly major dental work done without halting their Apixaban, or maybe other NOAC's, and how they got on afterwards.
PS. I'll be having a "post" fitted afterwards, but not for six months.
