You should talk to your dr about it.

Typically Pradaxa is discontinued 1 to 2 days (no renal impairment) or 3 to 5 days (CrCl <50 mL/min) before invasive or surgical procedures because of the increased risk of bleeding. Consider longer times if undergoing major surgery, spinal puncture, or placement of a spinal or epidural catheter or port, in whom complete hemostasis may be required. What has your doctor said?

Thanks for the excellent advice. My doctor said the dentist would tell me and the dentist said ask the doctor? I finally got the answer from another doctor.
