NHS Scotland issues new bleeding disorders guidance on dentistry
A new pair of leaflets from NHS Scotland have just been published.
The first leaflet is Guidance for Adult Dental Patients with Bleeding Disorders. It gives information about how to prevent dental problems, what dental treatments do and don’t typically cause bleeding problems, and information about local anasthethesia.
The second leaflet is Guidance for Dental Practitioners. You can take this to your local dentist if they have any questions about how to treat you with a bleeding disorder. The leaflet contains the relevant contact details they may need.
You can read the text from the patient leaflet on our Dentistry page.
