I went to the dentist last week and have a broken tooth. The dentist said she could not fill the broken tooth as the adjacent tooth had a crack at root level and needs to be extracted. I would need to go into hospital for the extraction because of the drugs I am on, namely methotrexate,bisopronol, warfarin and folic acid. My INR is2.3. I have had 2 extractions at the same surgery and been on the same drugs. She said the rules have now changed, is this a EU ruling ! I had been told previously that if my INR was below 4 hospitalisation was not necessary. Anyone else had this experience?
