Oral Surgery: How to Prepare for Having a Tooth Pulled

Posted .

Are you about to get a tooth pulled? If so, then it’s important to prepare for your appointment! If you prepare for your appointment, there is a higher chance you’ll have a more successful treatment. So, our Pipestone Dental Center dental team would be more than happy to help you.

We recommend double checking the time of your appointment so you won’t be late. This will also help you plan your day around the appointment if you need to. We also recommend having a ride to and from our office because the dental sedatives might not make it safe for you to drive home. So, if you haven’t made travel plans, please do so.

It’s very important that you follow the food instructions your dentist, Dr. William Olson or Dr. Mark Morgan, gives you. We generally recommend that patients fast 8-12 hours before their appointment, so please do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before.

If you know the details of the extraction treatment, you might feel less nervous and anxious. So, we recommend asking your dentist for a step-by-step explanation of the treatment so you will be prepared.
