For patients taking blood thinners such as Coumadin/Warfarin/Eliquis/Xarelto: Prior to your oral surgery procedure, it is recommended to have a consultation with your regular physician whether there is a need to temporarily stop your blood thinner therapy.

Laboratory studies may be required to determine your current anticoagulant activity. Always follow the guideline of your physician regarding discontinuation of the anticoagulant therapy.
