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 instruction 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. Roberts personally through his home number or pager number. If you have trouble for any reason reaching Dr. Roberts, you should contact your dentist. If Dr. Roberts is out-of-town, he will have someone on-call for him.
