To help you feel more calm and relaxed in the dental chair when you visit your dentist for a tooth extraction, Dr. Gary K. Walden, our Family Dental Care dental team is happy to help you prepare for your appointment. 

Make sure you know exactly what time your appointment is scheduled. You don’t want to be early or late. It is also a good idea to confirm your travel arrangements, whether they are with family members or friends. It’s best to have a ride to and from your appointment because the anesthetic and sedation might take some time to wear off.

Dentists generally recommend fasting 8-12 hours before the treatment. If this is the case for you, don’t eat breakfast the morning of your surgery. It’s generally recommended that you do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your appointment.

For calm nerves, you can ask your dentist about the details of the treatment. If you know exactly what is going to happen, you can use the time between appointments to prepare for everything that is required for a tooth extraction. This will also help you feel less nervous and anxious.
