Do You Want to Stop Aspirin before Tooth Extraction?
First of all, the answer is good, because it is very important: cardiologists advise not to stop!
However, there is a good answer to whether to stop aspirin. It is posted for everyone to share. Why pay special attention to this topic? Since there have been more than 10 times this year, some patients or dentists have come directly to ask if they want to stop aspirin when they want to pull out their teeth.
Aspirin, as a drug, came out as early as 1897. It has been used by human beings for more than 100 years. It can be said that it is the ancestor of Western medicine. It was first used to relieve pain and fever, but in 1948, it was found that it can reduce the incidence of vascular embolism, so it can reduce the incidence of myocardial infarction. At the same time, in 1953, it was also reported by doctors that patients who use aspirin to relieve pain will have relatively high bleeding. So far, the advantages (reducing vascular embolism) and disadvantages (side effects that are easy to bleed) of aspirin have been known and studied by human beings for more than 60 years!
At present, aspirin is well known, it will not cause cancer, but also has many curative effects on human heart and blood vessel diseases. At present, doctors have determined that aspirin can reduce the incidence of heart disease by 30% and the death rate of human beings by more than 12%.
In 2007, a statement issued by the American Heart Association, the American Society of surgeons and the American Dental Association suggested that aspirin should not be stopped before, during or after tooth extraction! But because people are really worried about bleeding, the reality is that many doctors and patients will still stop aspirin.
But as a result, stopping aspirin may increase the risk of heart attack by more than 50%! In 2014, a research report published by dentists pointed out that most of the bleeding after tooth extraction is related to the age of patients and their own dental condition, not to aspirin; moreover, most of the reported bleeding caused by aspirin are sporadic case reports, but at present, there are many formal large-scale studies that have confirmed that aspirin is related to tooth extraction Blood has no effect.
This picture tells us that no matter your bleeding chance is low, medium or high, continuous aspirin is recommended during the operation.
In 2017, two research reports published in the International Journal of oral surgery pointed out that: the use of aspirin in extraction patients will not increase the risk of bleeding. This issue has been discussed and studied for 10 years. The repeated research results and the common resolution of doctors suggest that if your doctor suggests that you use aspirin for a long time to prevent cardiovascular disease, then Do not stop aspirin when pulling out teeth, because it will not reduce bleeding, but will significantly improve the risk of cardiovascular disease!
