Oral Surgery: How to Prepare for Your Procedure

Preparing For Your Oral Surgery Procedure

Before having an oral surgery procedure, it is important to address any questions or concerns you have with your doctor beforehand. This will ensure that you are mentally and physically prepared for your procedure. To aid in this process, the staff at Jessen Oral Surgery has answered some of the most common surgery questions below.

How should I prepare the night before my oral surgery?

Since most people undergoing oral surgery require some form of anesthesia, you will first want to ask a friend or family member if they can take you and pick you up from our office. We do have 3 locations for oral surgery in Ogden, Vernal, and Clinton, so make sure they know which office you are going to for your appointment. Being under anesthesia requires fasting at least 8 hours prior to your oral surgery procedure, but ask your oral surgeon how long you should refrain from eating and drinking to be sure.

What is the recovery process like?

Depending on the type of oral surgery procedure you are having, it will change how you care for your mouth afterwards. Before you leave the house for your procedure, make sure your bed and pillows are placed in a comfortable position and that you have plenty of reading materials and remotes close by. This will help regulate how many times you have to get up post-op. To avoid getting dry sockets or irritating your mouth, it is critical to refrain from sucking motions, including drinking out of straws or smoking. If you experience swelling or pain after your oral surgery procedure, you can use ice on your facial/jaw area or rinse with warm salt water. Just make sure to clear these options with your doctor first.

How long will it take for my mouth/jaw to heal? What should I eat during recovery?Jaw surgery

The amount of your recovery time depends on the type of procedure you had done and how closely you follow the post-op care instructions from your oral surgeon. Wisdom teeth extraction, for example, tends to take longer to heal than dental implants and jaw surgery. For the first few days after the procedure you will want to eat vitamin-rich soft foods such as soup, yogurt, and applesauce. Any foods that are too hot, cold, or difficult to chew will cause your mouth and jaw discomfort and can increase the amount of time it takes to recover. After 48 hours, the swelling in your mouth should begin to subside and you can slowly return to your normal routine.

To help reduce stress and anxiety prior to your oral surgery, you should speak with your dentist and oral surgeon and ask any questions you may have about the procedure and recovery. Healing from any kind of surgery is a process, so make sure to ask for help when you need it from friends and family. By following these tips and preparing the night before, you will set yourself up to have a less stressful and smoother oral surgery experience.
