When you are having a tooth pulled, there are some things you can do to prepare for the treatment. Preparation helps the treatment to go as planned and makes healing more successful. To help you prepare for your tooth extraction appointment, our Robert Eversole, DDS, PC dental team is happy to help you for your procedure with your dentists, Dr. Robert Eversole or Dr. Matthew Sullivan.

First, make sure you know what time your appointment is scheduled so you won’t be late. Knowing the time you will need to be here will help you plan your day. We also recommend confirming your travel arrangements. If we haven’t told you already, you will need a ride to and from the office because the dental sedation might not allow you to drive.

Next, be sure to fast for 8-12 hours before your appointment. We recommend that you avoid eating or drinking after midnight the night before your appointment. However, there are exceptions for those with health issues. If you are diabetic or if you have a health condition that requires you to eat food, please inform us of this condition.

Are you nervous? If you would like to know what to expect during the surgery, please feel free to ask our dentist about the step-by-step tooth extraction process. Knowing these steps will help you prepare for the treatment and it might even help you feel more confident and less anxious about the procedure. 

After you’ve done these things, you’ll be all ready for your appointment! Dr. Robert Eversole and Dr. Matthew Sullivan want you to have the best experience possible, so we strongly recommend doing everything you can to make the appointment smooth and successful. If you have any questions about tooth extraction in Greensburg, Indiana, or if you need help doing these things, please call us today at [phone0 to talk to a member of our caring dental team.
