Routine follow-up visits are done by your dentist at his office five-to-seven days after your surgery. At that time, he will examine the surgery site and give you routine follow-up instructions, which includes a plastic irrigating syringe to be used to keep the lower extraction sites clean. However, if you feel anything is not going well, or if you are unhappy about something, then you need to contact Dr. Ragsdale personally through his cell number at (832) 240-6778. If you have trouble reaching Dr. Ragsdale for any reason, you should contact your dentist. If Dr. Ragsdale is out-of-town, he will have someone on-call for him.
