If you are worried about an upcoming procedure or looking for the best in dental care, here are some tips on how to prepare for oral surgery from the professionals at Oral Surgery Associates.
- Transportation: The night before your appointment, make sure you’ve arranged rides to and from your dentist’s office. You may not be able to drive because of the side effects of anesthesia. Getting those details set ahead of time will give you peace of mind and avoid confusion and putting yourself in danger.
- Eating: Most likely, you will be required to fast the night before your surgery. Plan this out the day before so that you aren’t overly hungry the next day. Also, after oral surgery, stick to soft foods, like soups or yogurt, for the first few days. Avoid anything hard or crunchy. Immediately after your surgery, avoid anything extremely hot or cold because you may not be able to feel its temperature accurately.
- Communicating: Every procedure is different, so ask your dental surgeon ahead of time how to prepare for your specific surgery.
