Dental Extractions

There are many reasons that teeth need to be removed. These include decay, gum disease, and trauma.

In most situations, an office visit will be scheduled for you to meet the doctor and be evaluated with an x-ray and intra-oral examination. Anesthesia options will be explained and a recommendation offered.

Most patients prefer to remain home from work on the day of surgery. Returning to work the same day as surgery is performed is not an option if you choose to have intravenous (IV) anesthesia, as your sedation will take most of the day to wear off. You must have an escort and have had nothing to eat or drink six hours prior to an IV anesthetic.

You will receive printed post-operative instructions to reference during your healing. If you have IV anesthesia, these will be reviewed with your driver while you are in our recovery area. These post-operative instructions are also found on our web site on the "Patient Information" tab. Extra gauze and your doctor's prescriptions will be provided.

If you choose to be sedated, your health history will be reviewed during your examination appointment. If your medical condition is complex, we may need to discuss treatment with your physician before your surgery. Please bring a complete list of all medications you are taking to your first appointment.
