How to Prepare for Your Oral Surgery

There are many different types of oral surgery, including extractions in New York. These procedures help patients find relief from pain, infection, and other dental health concerns. If you are planning to undergo oral surgery, these tips can help you prepare for the experience:

Understand the Procedure

In order to prepare for your oral surgery, you need to fully understand the procedure. Your dentist will explain what the procedure is and what problems it will address. It is important to ask any questions you have so your dentist can explain all aspects of the procedure and help you prepare for the day.

Arrange Transportation

You will likely be under some sort of anesthesia during your oral surgery. That is why it is important to arrange transportation to the dental office and back home once surgery is over and you are released. Ask a trusted friend or family member to drive you to the dental office on the day of your appointment and drive you back home when you are done. It is also a good idea to have a friend or family member stay with you in case you need help.

Learn About Restrictions

There are various restrictions your dentist should make you aware of before the day of your procedure. These restrictions might dictate what activities you can do after oral surgery, what types of mediations you need to take or avoid after surgery, and what kind of diet you should follow immediately after surgery. You should follow these instructions so that you can heal properly after the procedure.

Prepare Your Home

It is also important to prepare your home for your return following surgery. You will need a comfortable place to rest for the day or night following your procedure. Make sure there is a clear path to your resting spot as well as the bathroom so you can avoid tripping.
