My Cardiologist said I should take the Plavix and aspirin with out interruption ,what do you think !! Thank you !

Hard to say.  How easily do you bleed and for how long?  I would normally default to the cardiologist since they are the ones who prescribed the medication and only they should take you off of it as they see fit.  You may want your dentist to talk to your cardiologist about it and let them figure it out.
