6 Things You Should Know Before Having Oral Surgery

how to prepare for oral surgery Florissant

When it comes to preparing for oral surgery,  the valued patients of Koch Park Dental in Florissant are given 6 vital directives to get them through from start to finish.

First, Choose Wisely
Understanding the details of a procedure helps you achieve the optimal outcome. This important 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 Records
This is not just for billing purposes. The conscientious staff here at Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS want to prepare for any possibility. Making sure your personal contact information is up-to-date helps us convey critical details to you post-procedure.

Fourth, Be Honest
While Dr. Martin Buchheit has a gentle, experienced 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 problematic 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 critical 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 needed recovery instructions. Follow these as issued.

Finally, Sixth, Accept our Thanks
We appreciate your business. We are so grateful for the trust you’ve placed in our hands. Thank you.
