How To Prepare For Your Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is not a pleasant experience for both adults and children. Extraction can be quite painful and stressful if you don't prepare for it. Manteca Dental Care is here to help you and prepare for your tooth extraction. It's your right to know all about tooth extractions.

Disclose Your Dental History

Your dentist must have a thorough understanding of your medical history, so mention all the details about the following:

  • Bacterial endocarditis
  • Congenital heart defect
  • Biomechanical or mechanical heart valves
  • Artificial joint replacements
  • Liver disease
  • Heart disease
  • Impaired immune system
  • Discussing your total health will help them help you better.

Things to Consider Before Tooth Extraction

Don't Eat Before Your Tooth Extraction

Avoid eating anything around 12 hours before the extraction if it is done under general anesthesia. This prevents nausea during the procedure.

Avoid Stress

Tooth extractions can be so stressful and tense for you. But you need not worry because our team of expert dentists ensures you get the best treatment every time. 

Wear Light Garments

Dress comfortably like a short-sleeved dress and avoid wearing pieces of jewelry, contact lenses, and perfumes to keep yourself comfortable.

Get X-Rays of the Affected Area

Get X-rays of the affected area if needed with the advice of your dentist. Get advice from your dentist and give them the best plan to extract teeth.

What to Know Before Your Tooth Extraction?

There are two kinds of tooth extraction: Simple extraction and surgical extraction. It depends upon the inflexibility of your tooth and other factors which your dentist seems appropriate.

While undergoing a tooth extraction, you will likely get anesthesia or sedation. Some people may know which ones work for them and which ones cause an allergic reaction. So let the dentist know if you have any prior experience in getting anesthesia or sedation. 

Painkillers are part of your recovery process, let your dentist know your preferences for this too. This can help them to prepare the best medical plan for you.
