My oral surgeon said that my taking estradiol would create clots when I have my wisdom teeth removed?

In brief: Not really

Estrogen promotes platelet activity but only a little.
And it's not a problem, we want you to stop bleeding when you have surgery!

In brief: Doubtful

According to my resources, Estradiol does not have any known effects on dental treatment, but does have a possible side effect of venous thromboembolism (blood clots).
I would get a second opinion.
