I had a deep cleaning yesterday. Cardio said no need to bridge unless they expect a lot of blood. I knew I had 1 tooth that would be an issue so I dropped INR down to about 1.4. Everything went well, I made the mistake of resuming bridging that night and woke up with clots of blood in my mouth. Stopped bridging for today, trying black tea and gauze. Perio said is if it keeps bleeding to come in they have some topical stuff they can put on to stop the bleeding. No luck, GI bleed 2 years ago after colonoscopy and now this. Still think mechanical was the right option for me, but it sure brings its share of effort.
