Hi Patty,

Blood thinners can be used dental implant surgery and bone grafting. Your dentist will probably have your blood drawn to look for certain parameters. Platelet count, INR, PT, PTT, and bleeding time are just a few of many considerations that your implant dentist will probably discuss with you.

Good Luck!

Dear Dr Amin,

I appreciate the information on your site.

Will anticoagulant therapy from a drug eluting stent or oral blood thinner medication affect bone graft healing?

Thank you in advance for you reply,

Patty Campbell

Hi Claudia,

It was both a pleasure and a privilege to treat your parents. I am so pleased that it has made such a positive impact on their lives.


Thank you Dr. Amin for placing implants in my mom and dad. I have noticed they both have a new sense of confidence in they're smile. They are so happy and smile all the time. They were surprised to not having any pain after the procedure. Our family would recommend you to anyone who needs dental implants.


I just want to ask what are the other ways that I can use to make sure that the dentist that will implant my teeth was a knowledgeable one? I have no doubts on the dentist knowledge, I just want to be sure and safe.
