Dental treatment – I have just been to the dentist. Can I donate?

Maybe, it depends on the type of treatment you have received.

Simple treatments (cleaning, fillings and braces)

For the first 24 hours after seeing the dentist we can only use the plasma from your donation. After 24 hours, provided you’re well, you can donate whole blood or platelets.

Extractions, crowns, root canals

For the first 7 days after seeing the dentist we can only use the plasma from your donation. After 7 days, provided you’re well, you can donate whole blood or platelets.

Implants, major surgery

Longer restrictions may apply. Call us on 13 14 95 to find out when you can donate after visiting the dentist.
