Brief answer....must get your blood sugar levels and blood pressure under control
Detailed answer...
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
Most important things to do before teeth extraction is to have normal blood sugar levels as well as normal blood pressure.
So get your blood sugar fasting and PP done and get your BP measured.
In case they are out of control,you are required to bring them in control before extraction of teeth.
I hope it helps however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks
