Oral Surgery FAQ

Do you have any questions about oral surgery treatment? Find your answers below.

 It all depends on each patient,  it can take upto a week or two to fully recover, in some rare cases a month. 

The appointment generally takes about 45min-to 1hr. We start by giving the patient N20 (laughing gas), then the surgeon will administer the IV medication to sedate the patient. 

It all depends on a patient's pain tolerance. It can generally take about one week.

We ask you to take two days off, the day of surgery and the following day due to the pain and swelling. We also ask no physical activities for a week. 

Between teenage years and early twenties. 

We recommend no physical activities for a week. 

 If you have a medical cognition that requires to premedicate, then yes. Otherwise no need to premedicate.

1.       You must have a responsible person to accompany you. They will stay in the office reception area during surgery and drive you home after the procedure.

2.       Plan to rest for the remainder of the day.  Do not operate cars, power tools, machinery, etc., for twenty-four (24) hours after surgery.

3.       Nothing to eat or drink for eight (8) hours prior to surgery.   However, it is important that you take any regular medications (high blood pressure, antibiotics, etc.) or any premedication prescription that we may have provided, using only a small sip of water.

4.       Please wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing.  Tops/shirts should have sleeves that are easily drawn up above the elbow.  When possible, colored nail polish should be removed before surgery.
