Stents, Plavix, and dental work

Hi, I just needed to have a stent placed and will be needing dental implants. Has anyone had this done while on Plavix and what was your experience. Thanks Laray

Re: Stents, Plavix, and dental work

Since Plavix is a blood thinner, it is standard to stop Plavix ten days before surgery; this was recommended to me both before oral surgery to get a tooth removed, and another major surgery. (I have always wondered if this means that if one gets in a car wreck, attacked by a bear, etc, that one is much more likely at a life threatening level..) Take care
