Going to the Dentist and Hemophilia

Posted on May 18, 2018

Going to the dentist when you have hemophilia requires special forethought and care. Even simple dental procedures may result in bleeding gums or trigger a bleed. Many dentists aren't educated about bleeding disorders. Your hematologist may have information or directions for your dentist before a procedure.

On MyHemophiliaTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Going to the dentist is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about going to the dentist:

Finished 10 days of infusions due to oral surgery. Feels great to have the line out.

I had a small laser procedure done on my gums today and the dentist said it shouldn't bleed much. Hahaha was he wrong!

Because of pending dental surgery, my daughter will need IV- Humate P, a new factor for her.

Does your doctor ask you to write a journal for every doctor visit or dentist visit?

Can you relate?
