dental work before surgery

I AM HAVING LAPBAND SURGERY IN TWO WEEKS.  i AM SUPPOSED TO HAVE THREE TEETH PULLED TOMORROW.  IS IT SAFE TO HAVE DENTAL EXTRACTIONS BEFORE SURGERY?

I would contact your surgeon who is performing the LapBand surgery to see if it will interfere with their procedure.  I don't imagine it would have much of an effect as the extraction area should heal fairly well in two weeks.
