Aim of this study is to review the evidence of different therapy approach, to highlight the areas of major concern and to suggest specific oral surgery treatment for patients on oral anticoagulants. The aim of operative treatment is to minimize the risk of hemorrhage while continuing to protect the patient against thromboembolism formation. The ordinary treatment includes the interruption of anticoagulant therapy for oral surgery interventions to prevent hemorrhage. However, this practice may logically increase the risk of a potentially life-threatening thromboembolism. Thus, this issue is still controversial. The update management of oral surgery procedures on patients treated with oral anticoagulants should be influenced by several factors: laboratory values, extent and urgency of the intervention, treating physician’s recommendation, available facilities, dentist expertise, and patient’s oral, medical, and general condition. Key words: oral surgery, oral anticoagulant therapy
