One aspect of our dental services where the utmost care and attention is required involves what’s known as hemostasis and coagulation.
About Hemostasis & Coagulation
Let’s look at a brief overview of hemostasis and coagulation. How do the two relate to one another and what are their differences?
Hemostasis is a natural process that is activated in order to stop excessive bleeding after an injury has occurred. As a natural process, it is considered to be the first stage of a wound’s healing process. Hemostasis is able to arrest the bleeding in the blood vessel through a combination of platelet, plasma, and vascular factors. This process is able to keep blood in a liquid state under certain physiological conditions.
Coagulation, on the other hand, is actually the last or the last stage in hemostasis. This is considered to be an important process. An injured or cut blood vessel could easily lead to shock or death due to excessive blood loss. It can be prevented through blood coagulation or blood clotting, which is achieved by converting specific elements in the blood into gel-like substances at the site of the injury.
Hemostasis and Coagulation After Dental Surgery
As we mentioned above, dental surgery is a prominent part of our services. It includes everything from the simplest tooth extractions, bone grafting, dental implant installations, sleep apnea treatment, and more.
The prominent part played by dental surgery in our services means that we often cope with bleeding. And we definitely encounter uncontrolled hemorrhage a lot in the various treatments and procedures that we perform.
However, this can be considered a serious emergency situation, particularly if the bleeding is quite strong. If this occurs right after a surgical procedure, then it requires immediate and appropriate action to control the bleeding. It could prove dangerous and can even lead to mortality if not handled properly.
A very thorough understanding of hemostasis and coagulation is required to control the bleeding and minimize the risks. Our team at Floss N Gloss are not just well-versed in handling such cases but are actual experts who can take care of the situation.
