Your pre- and post-operative instructions are a key component of your treatment, and they can be the difference between healing quickly and comfortably or needing longer to recover. Your pre-operative instructions are designed to help you prepare for treatment properly. They will provide you with guidelines for appropriate clothing and any restrictions required if you are undergoing anesthesia.
Your post-operative instructions will likely be specific to your procedure and help you navigate the recovery process, though we do offer a general set of instructions that applies to most oral surgeries. Post-operative instructions will help you understand what to expect after surgery, including discomfort levels and how to manage them, which foods to eat or stay away from, and much more. It's important for you to understand all of your instructions before undergoing treatment.
