Before and after your oral surgery, it will be extremely important for you to take good care of yourself to ensure you heal properly and quickly. When you leave our office after your initial consultation, we will provide you with both pre- and post-operative instructions. These instructions contain specific steps for you to follow before and after surgery to ensure a quick and comfortable recovery. The pre-operative instructions are general tips to help make sure your procedure can be performed as planned.
The post-operative instructions will be more specific to the procedure you are undergoing. These will contain much more specific guidelines for care to help you navigate your diet, oral hygiene, and activity after your procedure. In most cases, you will only have to alter your routine for a few days while you adhere to these instructions. Once you have healed properly, you can return to your normal routine. The pages below feature written — and in some cases, video — instructions in both English and Spanish for you to review before your procedure. We encourage you to contact our office if you have any questions or need for clarification.
