Patients with hemostatic disorders are a risk group in dental care when they should undergo dental procedures that presupposes bleeding. Hemostasis is determined by a series of complex events that prevent the loss of blood, so, if any of these mechanisms fails, blood will come out of the blood vessels, especially if the dental procedure to be applied involves tissue bleeding. Before performing the procedure, one should request a study of the case to diagnose what type of disorder the patient might present with and give the specific treatment. This paper is aimed at studying those hemostatic disorders that involve platelets and extend the bleeding time and dealing with the coagulation factors defects affecting this important mechanism. On the other hand, we will address the effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant agents in patients requiring a dental surgical treatment in order to facilitate the work of a health professional who daily faces problems of this kind and provide him with valuable knowledge on each of the analyzed issues.
