INTRODUCTIONS: The oral surgeons are frequently asked to manage patients who are receiving oral anticoagulants. The goal of 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.
AIM:However, this practice may logically increase the risk of a potentially life-threatening thromboembolism. Thus, this issue is still controversial. The aim of the study was to evaluate the mouthwash solution (tranexamic acid) as a local haemostatic modality after oral surgery interventions.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: To realize the aim 100 individuals who received oral anticoagulants were included.
RESULTS: The analysis showed that there was no significant difference between the two treatment groups in the bleeding incidence after oral surgery interventions.CONCLUSION: The anticoagulant treatment does not need to be withdrawn before oral surgery provided that local antifibrinolytic therapy is instituted.

Key words: tooth extraction, oral anticoagulants, tranexamic acid.
