Does Removing a Molar Tooth Break the Fast


Question:
What is the ruling on a fasting person removing a molar tooth, does it break his fast?

Answer:
The blood which comes out due to a molar tooth or the like being removed does not break the fast, because it does not have the same effect as cupping, therefore it does not cause one to break one’s fast.
