The extraction process will be similar to what we describe, only because that's the only way there is to remove teeth.

What will likely be unique to your situation is the planning that takes place before and after your procedure.

For example, your extractions will probably be scheduled for a non-dialysis day ("blood thinners" used during dialysis might cause you to have extra bleeding). Extra post-op steps might be used to also help to minimize your potential for bleeding complications.

In cases where a patient is at increased risk for infection (has a compromised immune system), antibiotics might be prescribed before their extraction.

All of these issues will be sorted out at your initial examination when the planning for your extractions are made, so to make your procedure as risk-free and routine as possible. Good luck, we're sure you'll find you're in good hands.
