hello snehal

welcome to healthcare magic

never take risk extraction during jaundice it is an relative contraindication. all drugs, anesthesia given should be metabolised through liver which is at present at bad condition, so it is better not to extract. let the infection subside then carry on with dental procedures..

welcome to healthcaremagic
it is always advisable to get treatment for jaundice first and once the condition is treated go for tooth extraction
deep jaundice are usually associated with clotting factors deficiencies and may cause bleeding disorder during any surgical procedure
if it is emergency adequate steps to be taken to control the problem before any surgical procedure
