Perioperative bleeding complications of ticagrelor, a newer oral antiplatelet, has not been studied in dentistry. Studies about bleeding status after oral surgical procedures in patients receiving continued antiplatelet therapy are also limited. We investigated the effects of continuing aspirin, clopidogrel, ticagrelor, or dual antiplatelet therapy on the frequency of bleeding events in patients undergoing tooth extractions or minor oral surgery. In this retrospective study, patient demographic characteristics, medical history, type of antiplatelet therapy, dental procedures, and perioperative bleeding associated with tooth extraction or other minor oral surgical procedures were obtained from the dental records of 222 patients. Bleeding was classified as normal, mild, moderate, or severe.

Key Words. Bleeding; dual antiplatelet therapy; surgery; tooth extraction; aspirin; clopidogrel; ticagrelor.
