Toothache vanished but again appeared
My father had angioplasty 2 years ago.Now he is suffering from heavy toothache.His molar tooth is affected.If tooth extraction is needed,he needs to stop blood thinner. He is currently taking Ticagrelor 60 twice and ecosprin 75 after lunch.He did have TVCAD (severe blockage).His cardiologist advised him not to stop aspirin ever and the doctor also suggeted that he should not stop ticagrelor more than two days.Now what should he do if tooth extraction is needed?

Schools of thought have changed about stopping the blood thinners. When not permitted by the cardiologist, we extract teeth and stop the bleeding locally with compression and other methods.
Next Steps
Don't worry go to an experienced dental surgeon and he or she will take care of it.

These medicines can safely be stopped temporarily but only under supervised guidance of the treating cardiologist. It’s routinely done in dental practice. Keeping a source of infection in oral cavity can be detrimental
