Hi , my 16 year old has been diagnosed with ITP for almost 2 years now. He has saw his dentist today and been told he needs a back molar removed . He has never had a platelet count above 50 . Does anyone know the procedure ? The dentist is taking advice for heamotologist. Would really like to know what happens is these situations.
