Oral Surgery: How to Prepare for Your Procedure

Preparing For Your Oral Surgery Procedure

Before any oral surgery, it’s important to make sure that you’re prepared both physically and mentally for the procedure and recovery. Most oral surgeries are performed with some form of anesthesia so it is best to have bulk of your questions answered prior to your surgery date. Here are a few suggestions to make sure that you’re ready, comfortable and prepped for your procedure. For any other questions, feel free to check out our patient info.

What do I need to do the night before my oral surgery procedure?

If you’re preparing to undergo oral surgery, chances are that you will be leaving your oral surgeons office the same day you receive anesthesia so you’ll need some form of transportation back home. See if a friend or family member can drive you to your appointment as well as home again afterwards. Keep in mind that fasting is required prior to many surgeries. Check with your oral surgeon to see when you need to stop eating and drinking or what, if anything, you can have in the eight to twelve hours before surgery.

What can I expect during recovery?

Depending on your procedure, make sure that there will be someone at home to help you with care upon return from your surgery. Set your bed to a comfortable position in which you’re reclined and have pillows, remotes, tissues and reading material close by to cut down on the amount of times you have to get in or out of bed. Sucking motions can irritate mouth surgery sites so avoid drinking through straws or smoking post-op. If your mouth is sore, swollen or uncomfortable after surgery, try icing or rinsing it with warm salt water. Make sure your oral surgeon supports these options.

How much time do I need to heal and what do I eat in the meantime?Jaw surgery

For the first couple days following surgery, try to eat foods that have high vitamin levels but are soft and easy to chew. Yogurt, soup and Jello are good options and easy on sore mouths. Be wary of extremely hot or extremely cold foods for the first 24 hours after your procedure. Generally, it takes 48 hours for major swelling and discomfort to subside. Allow yourself and your mouth enough time to heal before tackling hard or crunchy foods. Often times, wisdom teeth extractions can take longer to heal than other procedures.

Everyone knows that any kind of surgery, no matter how minor, can be nerve-wracking and stressful. Eliminate some of the major stress factors by consulting your dentist and oral surgeon prior to your appointment. Be patient with your healing process and don’t be afraid to ask for assistance from friends and family during the first few days of recovery. Prepare the night before your oral surgery to guarantee that you have a smooth, pain-less and worry-free oral surgery experience!
