Therapeutic options to manage bleeding in a dentist’s office


Rostetter, Claudio; Finkenstädt, Tim; Rücker, Martin; Lübbers, Heinz-Theo (2018). Therapeutic options to manage bleeding in a dentist’s office. Swiss Dental Journal, 128(6):498-499.

Abstract

This manuscript provides an overview of therapeutic options for the problem of bleeding in a dentist’s office. Bleeding after tooth extraction is a very common finding in dental medicine and persistent blood in the mouth is obviously uncomfortable and sometimes terrifying for the patient. Most bleedings can be stopped simply with compression, in some cases a homeostatic therapy is necessary. For local compression, a swab with tranexamic acid is useful. If local compression is not sufficient, sutures are often an option. A very effective therapy would also be Tabotamp®, a local hemostypticum which is placed onto the bleeding and should increase the thrombocytic aggregation. In the worst case Floseal®, a human Thrombin, can be placed locally. It stops the bleeding very fast and sufficiently.
