Dentists may encounter patients with various types of bleeding disorders in their daily practice. Initial recognition of such bleeding disorders and their possible systemic causes, as well as knowing when to refer those cases to secondary care, plays a crucial and important role in reducing potential complications and negative side-effects. This article will give an account of the most common bleeding disorders that dentists might find in their daily dental practice. This will be followed by another article that will cover the management of congenital and acquired disorders found in the dental practice.
