6 Things You Should Know Before Having Oral Surgery

how to prepare for oral surgery Roy

When it comes to preparing for oral surgery,  the valued patients of Roy Dental Care are given 6 vital instructions to get them through from start to finish.

First, Choose Wisely

Understanding the details of a procedure helps you achieve the optimal outcome. This critical knowledge about your dental experience opens up a conversation with our staff. This leads us to the next instruction:

Second, Question Up Front

We want to answer these 4 important questions:
-What are the alternatives to having it done?
-Why is this the best option?
-How many visits should I expect?
-What kind of complications or risks are there?
(After you’ve asked your questions, we’ll ask ours.)

Third, Update Your Records

This is not just for billing purposes. The conscientious staff here at Roy Dental Care want to prepare for any possibility. Making sure your personal contact information is up-to-date helps us convey important information to you post-procedure.

Fourth, Be Honest

While doctor Reggie Whitaker has a gentle, professional touch, we find that slight pinches and cramping, and other pain can develop while you are in your chair. When the doctor asks if you are comfortable, please be honest. We understand it is problematic to communicate clearly when your mouth is inundated with tools. Experience has helped us to read your cues. Let us make you as comfortable as possible.

Fifth, Rest and Recover

After an extensive procedure, it is critical to allow a period of rest for your mouth. This rest period may vary depending on how the procedure goes. This instruction will be given to you along with any other necessary recovery instructions. Follow these as issued.
