While the treatment experience itself certainly matters, how you care for yourself before and after oral surgery can be key to successful care. In addition to providing personalized guidance, we have information that helps you understand what to expect from your arranged treatment.
Oral surgery can be part of a larger treatment to address tooth loss, either through a complex extraction of multiple teeth or the placement of dental implants to support prostheses. This kind of service is also needed for many who need to book the removal of their wisdom teeth. As with any procedure, we will provide detailed information on why we have recommended this course of care. In addition, we will provide instructions on how to prepare for your appointment and how to enjoy the appropriate recovery.
- If you smoke, avoid doing so for 72 hours prior to your surgery
- Arrange for someone to take you to and from your appointment
- Discuss any medications you take with your doctor to determine if they are safe to take before your appointment
Surgical procedures that address poor dental health can be intimidating, but they provide important protection. They can also have less impact on your comfort and well-being than you anticipate, particularly when you have the right instructions for pre- and post-care.
