Currently scheduled for your first oral surgery appointment? When you know exactly what to expect when you are in need of any kind of dental surgery, it is simply going to make for a much smoother process. The majority of patients who need surgery do so on an outpatient basis, which means that not too long after the surgery is completed you will soon be on your way home to recover. While it is essential for you to carefully follow the dentist's post-op instructions in order to recover successfully, it is also important for you to know what to do before going in for the surgery.
The majority of oral surgeries involve tooth extractions (including impacted wisdom teeth), jaw alignment corrections, replacing missing or damaged teeth, installing dental implants and removing excess tissue from sleep apnea patients.
We welcome any questions you have regarding the dental surgery process.
