|Title:||Clinical impact of oral health indexes in dental extraction of hemophilic patients|
de Almeida, OP
|Abstract:||Purpose: Periodontal disease in patients with hemorrhagic disorders may lead to severe bleeding during dental treatment. This study evaluated the clinical impact of oral health indexes in hemophilic patients undergoing tooth extraction. Patients and Methods: Thirty-one hemophilic patients underwent teeth extractions using autologous fibrin glue and an oral antifibrinolytic drug (epsilon-aminocaproic acid). Oral health indexes (plaque, PI; gingival, GI; and decay-missing-filling-teeth, DMFT index) were evaluated before tooth extraction. Results: Postsurgical bleeding episodes were observed in 6 hemophilic patients (1 severe, 3 moderate, and 2 mild type). The PI and GI index in the bleeding group were 1.8 and 1.7, respectively, and 1.8 for both of the non-bleeding groups (PI, P =.8; GI, P =.56). The global DMFT index was 18 in the bleeding group and 19.6 in the non-bleeding group (P =.67). Conclusion: The status of oral health did not interfere with bleeding caused by dental extraction of hemophilic patients. (C) 2006 American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.|
