Anticoagulation Medication Management: Characteristics and Concerns
Presented by Kalin Johnson, PharmD
A number of health conditions may require the use of anticoagulant medications. Today, there is warfarin as well as direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC) to be aware of in the dental setting. While effective, warfarin has many drug-drug, drug-disease, and drug-food interactions that dentists should be aware of. DOACs have less drug interactions but still pose a significant bleeding risk in certain dental procedures. The management concerns of these anticoagulants in the dental setting will be discussed.
