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. Starck personally through his cell number at 817.800.9634. If you have trouble reaching Dr. Starck for any reason, you should contact your dentist. If Dr. Starck is out-of-town, he will have someone on-call for him.
