Patients who take anticoagulant drugs, such as warfarin, or a new class of drugs call the novel oral anticoagulants - called NOACs or new anticoagulants  (including diabigatran (Pradaxa) apixaban (Aliquis) and rivaroxaban ( Xarelto) ) must NOT stop their medication before dental treatment due to the risk of a stroke. 

Please let your dentist know if you are taking any of these drugs because it is important to ensure that alterations are not required prior to any appointments by discussing this with your treating medical practitioner, to ensure that any risk of post operative bleeding has been recognised and addressed. 

Our dental professionals are up to date with the latest medicines and all requirements and are happy to discuss any general dental queries or health issues that you may have around this.
