    I'm due to have one upper back old crowned tooth removed plus a lower back tooth which is broken at base...the hospital surgery is doing extraction as local dentist feels its best. I have abnormal arteries/capillaries in upper gum, area and face, but the specialist said the MRI showed the location of capillary away from the extraction site...im anxious about this because I fear massive bleeding. Is this a usual fear. Any suggestion please..Thankyou.

    What is the name of your condition, please? Am I correct in understanding you have normal coagulations, but that you have an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) of the face?

    yes thats correct. Maxiofacial specialist performed a MRI.to get pictures.of arteries, etc. He indicated that the scan projects the formation away.from.the extraction zone. I have a birth mark or port wine stain on same side....thanks for replying.

    You will be in the best hands. The surgeon will have experience and equipment controlling your bleeding. In a hospital setting, you will have access to blood transfusion at last resort. You may have prolonged oozing which will actually help close the wound. Keep up with appropriate followups with your surgical/dental team.

    Just come back from hospital minus two teeth. They made it look so easy. All my fears disappeared. Very little blood loss. I have stitches too. Hoping for good healing....Thankyou everyone for support.
