This is because longer bleeding and, in many cases, develop severe stress for the noise caused by the apparatus or the application of dental injection, which contributes to high blood pressure much more.

According Thelma Rubinstein, Prisma Dental´s DDS, “hypertensive person tends to bleed more prolonged by their condition and because of the medicines they take, for example the aspirin, because it causes the blood structure change, making it more liquid and this makes it difficult to stop the bleeding. “
