JADA July 2019

Background. The use of anticoagulants is ubiquitous in outpatient medical practice, with anticoagulants now among the most common classes of medications prescribed in the United States. Despite its safety, anticoagulation around minimally invasive dental procedures remains a source of discomfort for dental practitioners and a common reason for referral to specialist anticoagulation clinics. The introduction of new anticoagulant options, as well as the changing practice pattern in anticoagulant prescription, somewhat contributes to this situation. Reviewing the commonly used anticoagulants in outpatient medical practice, as well as their implications in dental practice, is integral to providing safe oral health care.
