|Oral surgery is something that many people need to undergo. The different procedures can help resolve problems that can cause a lot of issues for a person.
Our dental professionals have the education and experience to understand what happens during the oral surgeries. Our patients may not always be as well informed. That is why it is important to ask questions of our staff before you undergo any oral surgery procedure.
Ask About Our OfficeThe more comfortable you are going into an oral surgery, the easier it is for everyone. One way to help you feel comfortable is by finding out why our office is the right place for the surgery. You can ask about our experience and our staff. You can ask where in the office the surgery is done. It is okay to ask what the possible complications from the surgery are. These questions allow us to assure you that this is the right place for the oral surgery.
Ask About the Oral SurgeryOnce you are comfortable with the place, you need to know more about the surgical procedure. You can find out what the procedure is and why you need it done. You can ask what happens if you don't have the surgery.
Once you are comfortable with the place and the surgery, you need to find out what your responsibility for the surgery is. That means asking what you need to do before, during and after the surgery. You may want to know if you can get the instructions in writing.
It is very important to recognize that we do not think there are any dumb or unnecessary questions to ask before a surgery. Knowledge is one of the best tools you can have to make the oral surgery experience as comfortable as possible. The best way to get the knowledge you need is by asking questions.
