6 Things You Should Know Before Having Oral Surgery

how to prepare for oral surgery Oklahoma City

When it comes to preparing for oral surgery,  the valued patients of OKC Smiles are given 6 critical instructions to get them through from start to finish.

First, Choose Wisely

Understanding the details of a procedure helps you obtain the optimal outcome. This vital knowledge about your dental experience opens up a conversation with our staff. Which 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 Your Records

This is not just for billing purposes. The conscientious staff here at OKC Smiles want to prepare for any possibility. Making sure your personal contact information is up-to-date helps us convey vital information to you post-procedure.

Fourth, Be Honest

While Dr. Mark Phan has a gentle, caring touch, we find that slight pinches and cramping and other pain can develop while you are in our chair. When the doctor asks if you are comfortable, please be honest. We understand it is difficult 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 vital 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.
