Diseases that increase the risk of bleeding in dentistry

One of the factors that increase the risk of bleeding in dentistry is the presence of diseases that damage the function of the coagulation and platelet system. In this article, we have examined these patients and their medical conditions.

Some medical conditions and diseases are associated with the risk of increased bleeding due to damage to a person’s coagulation and platelet function, and this issue should be considered in the dental treatment plan. These cases include liver, kidney, and bone marrow disorders. Although in these patients, coagulation and platelet disorders are not related to anticoagulant and antiplatelet drugs, dentists in Richmond Hill need to identify these additional risk factors that can cause postoperative bleeding problems. Especially in patients who take anticoagulant and antiplatelet drugs. It is not possible to provide a complete list of these underlying problems, but the main ones, which can be relevant for patients treated with anticoagulants and antiplatelets, are listed below.

Increased risk of bleeding with various medical conditions

  • Chronic renal failure with platelet dysfunction
  • Liver diseases (alcohol dependent, viral hepatitis, autoimmune hepatitis, liver cirrhosis)
  • Hematologic (blood) malignancy or myelodysplastic disorder
  • Recent chemotherapy
  • Advanced heart failure
  • Mild form of hereditary bleeding disorders including all types of hemophilia and von Willebrand disease
