How to Prepare for Oral Surgery
Preparing for oral surgery – no matter what it is – is crucial. You can begin by cleaning your home before the procedure and ensuring everything you need is within easy reach in a neat space. We usually recommend sleeping at an incline, so set up some pillows and get used to sitting up, so you are thoroughly prepared. We will provide clear post-surgical instructions. Following these guidelines is critical to the success of the procedure. Finally, most surgical procedures will make it impossible to drive home, so arrange transportation to and from the dentists’ office.
What the Post-Surgery Recovery Period Looks Like
After your surgery, we will ask that you restrict your food intake. Don’t worry – it isn’t permanent! Usually, soft foods at room temperature are recommended, and consuming anything through a straw or eating hard, crunchy, or chewy foods is highly discouraged. No matter whether your procedure is straightforward or complex, you can expect a quick recovery time and for our expert team to help you along the way.
