Additional surgeries are also available, so we encourage you to speak with your Birch Family Dental provider for more information. We can help you determine what options are best for your specific needs. 

What Can You Expect During Your Oral Surgery?

Oral surgeries, depending on what you need to treat or accomplish, will vary. However, you should generally be treated similarly well while visiting the dentist’s office and receiving care. You should expect the following before and during your oral surgery:

  • Sedation: In many surgeries, you will receive an anesthetic or sedative to stay comfortable and calm during the procedure.
  • Provide Your Medical History: We encourage you to give your surgeon or dentist as much information about your medical history as possible. Typically, this will be provided in your consultation. Include surgeries, allergies, and medications.
  • Wear Comfortable Clothing: To be as comfortable as possible, we encourage you to wear loose-fitting and comfortable clothing. Avoid tight waistbands, open-toed shoes, shoes with tall heels, or jewelry.]
  • Transportation: Expect to feel a little strange after your surgery, and arrange for a ride following the procedure. We recommend you get a ride from a friend, family member, rideshare, or similar option.
  • Paperwork: We encourage you to arrive early, as you will need time to complete some paperwork for the practice.

During your initial consultation with your dentist, other specific information will also be shared with you. In some cases, molds of parts of your mouth, color preferences, shape preferences, and other details will be discussed beforehand.

Be sure to follow your dentist’s recommendations before you go into surgery, and ask any questions you might have. Your provider from Birch Family Dental will be happy to provide any necessary information, and we look forward to supporting you.

How to Have a Smooth Recovery Following Your Oral Surgery

Following your oral surgery, we encourage you to follow your dentist’s recommendations for aftercare. Generally, you will receive a prescription for pain medication. You should use your medication as instructed by your dentist, including the full course of any antibiotics. It may also be beneficial to use over-the-counter pain medications to manage additional pain.

In the first 48 hours after your surgery, ice packs can help reduce pain and swelling in the affected areas. You should not use an ice pack for more than 20 minutes at a time.

You should also be careful with your diet, avoiding hard, crunchy, or spicy foods. We also recommend you avoid using straws, as the suction can inhibit proper healing. You will likely be instructed to eat soft foods, such as smoothies, protein shakes, and steamed vegetables.

We also recommend you follow your dentist’s other recommendations for healing. Some specific aftercare may be beneficial.

In the long term, you should prioritize proper dental care. Brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes, use a gentle and circular motion when brushing, switch to a soft or medium-bristle toothbrush, and floss at least once a day. You should also visit your dentist regularly, or two to four times a year, based on your dentist’s recommendations.
