The Oral Surgery Process
If you are undergoing any form of oral surgery, we will ensure you are fully informed and prepared before your procedure. We will explain exactly what the procedure will involve, what to expect, costs, expected results, and of course thoroughly answer all of your questions and concerns.
We will give you instructions to prepare for your oral surgery, which may involve not eating or drinking for a period before your appointment, and ensuring you have a ride home organised if you are not likely to be able to drive yourself. We may also recommend that you organise time off work to speed your recovery.
The recovery process depends on the type of oral surgery you have, but again we will give you detailed post-care instructions. These will include care instructions, what to expect, how to stay comfortable, and when you can resume normal activities. We will also keep in contact with you to ensure that everything is on track and address any concerns or issues.
We offer our patients a full range of Dental Anxiety services, which are extremely helpful for those who are nervous and suffer from anxiety about visiting the dentist. These services range from Drift Away Anxiety Management, which distracts and calms you during your dental procedure, through to Oral Sedation, Nitrous Oxide and IV Sedation options to help you stay relaxed and stress-free throughout your appointment. As experienced Dental Surgeons, we can help you to manage your dental surgical needs safely and comfortably – you are in expert hands with us.
