1) If I have my tooth extracted, what happens to the space it leaves?

At our dental practices near Charlotte, we also recognize the importance of replacing missing teeth. Therefore, we offer dental implants and other tooth replacement options to ensure your smile is restored completely after tooth extraction.

2) Can I eat before a tooth extraction?

This depends on the type of tooth extraction you are having. If your procedure involves a surgical extraction, you will be sedated. Therefore, you should not eat six hours prior to the procedure. If you are having a simple extraction, you will have local anesthesia and can eat food beforehand.

3) Will I be able to drive home after the procedure?

If you are having a surgical extraction you will not be able to drive home due to being sedated for the procedure. However, if you had a simple extraction you will be able to drive following your appointment.
