Should I stop my aspirin before my dental implant surgery?
Many patients ask us this question, but the more recent data is showing us that it is not necessary to stop all the “anti-platelet” medications such as Aspirin. See the reference to the article below
HOWEVER, we always recommend that patients ask their Primary Care Physician (PCP) that placement them on such medications and let them know about their upcoming surgery. This is because a patient’s PCP will know their health history and their tendency for bleeding much better than anyone else.
