Dentist will need to surgically remove a tooth because it is broken below the gum line. Must I forgo taking Xarelto prior to the procedure? If so, how much stroke risk do I then fall under? I have occasional atrial fib, reason for the prescription. Is there some other method of minimizing possibility of the atrial fib?
That's really something you need to discuss with both your dentist and prescribing physician, as it's a unique situation. Are you going under full general anesthesia? Because that in itself brings up a whole new box of issues.
