6 Things You Should Know Before Having Oral Surgery

how to prepare for oral surgery Davidson

When it comes to preparing for oral surgery,  the valued patients of Dennis J Coleman DDS – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry are given 6 important directives to get them through from start to finish.

First, Choose Wisely
Understanding the details of a procedure helps you realize the ideal outcome. This vital 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 Records
This is not just for billing purposes. The conscientious staff here at Dennis J Coleman DDS – Family & Cosmetic Dentistry want to prepare for any possibility. Making sure your personal contact information is up-to-date helps us convey critical information to you post-procedure.

Fourth, Be Honest
While Doctor Dennis Coleman has a gentle, responsive 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 any 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 required recovery instructions. Follow these as issued.
