How to Get Ready for Oral Surgery

The way you get ready for oral surgery will affect how you recover. While you’ll be given complete preparation instructions by your dentist in Mount Dora, these additional tips may help you heal faster.

  1. Pay Attention to Pre-Op Instructions

Before you have oral surgery, your dentist in Mount Dora will give you complete instructions to follow prior to the procedure to avoid any complication. If your oral surgery requires general anesthesia, most oral surgeons request that you don’t eat or drink for at least eight hours before surgery. If the oral surgery only demands local anesthesia, it’s typically all right to have a light meal a few hours before the treatment. It’s also important not to smoke for at least 12 hours before the procedure, and at least 24 hours after the treatment. If you have questions prior to treatment, call your affordable dental care clinic to get all the answers you need.

  1. Pick up Your Prescriptions

After oral surgery, you will probably need to go home and rest. To be prepared for any pain, get all of the post-op medications prescribed by your dentist in Mount Dora prior to the procedure. If you’re concerned about the cost of prescriptions, ask your dentist in Mount Dora to prescribe more affordable dental care medications.

  1. Choose the Right Foods and Drinks after Surgery

After oral surgery, oral surgeons usually want you to use your teeth as little as possible. Most oral surgeons advise these diet dos and don’ts:

  • Stick to soft foods for the few days after surgery.
  • Don’t eat spicy or acidic foods until your mouth is fully healed.
  • Drink plenty of plain water.
  • Choose healthy drinks such as milk, tea, smoothies, and protein shakes.
  • Avoid drinking through a straw, because this can damage the surgical site.
  1. Arrange for Transportation

After having anesthesia, you’ll need to have someone available to take you home. Make plans to have a friend or family member take you and pick you up from your procedure.

  1. Sleep Safely

Rest assured that your dentist in Mount Dora would recommend the best sleeping positions after surgery to avoid putting pressure on your mouth. The best sleeping position is usually on your back with your head slightly propped by a few pillows.
