We like to suggest that our patients come in for a consultation before Victoria oral surgery. It’s the best way for them to feel comfortable before the operation. Consulting with us is the first step. We’ll be able to help you understand the kind of procedure that’s going to work for you.
Here are the best questions to ask before Victoria oral surgery.
Will X-Rays Be Necessary?
We want to be able to see exactly what needs to be done. Usually, that means having an x-ray well before your surgery date. It’s the best method to have a good look at the inside of your mouth.
The digital technology that we use will give us an accurate picture of exactly where the work needs to be done on your jaw or teeth.
Can I Eat Before?
There are some types of Victoria oral surgery where eating before hand can make patients feel comfortable. However, we like to take into account the kind of anesthesia that we might need to use.
For example, if we’re going to be using a general anesthetic, you shouldn’t eat for several hours before the surgery. Likewise, if the operation you’re going to have only requires a local, you can eat a light meal before.
It’s also good to keep in mind that we have years of experience. In fact, we’ve been maintaining and fixing teeth for four decades. We have treated literally thousands of patients just like you. Our level of service is such that our patients quite often refer us.
Making sure that you have all the information you need is our priority. That’s why we encourage everyone to come in before Victoria oral surgery. Having the right information always makes the process go smoothly.
What Anesthesia Options are There?
The type of sedation that we use depends on several different factors. We consider your anxiety level as well as how complicated the procedure will be. Before we make any final decisions, you’ll undergo a comprehensive checkup. That way everyone can rest assured that we will be using the right kind of anesthesia.
Can I Drive Afterward?
This depends on a few things. For example, if your oral surgery requires general anesthesia, we recommend that you have someone drive you home. On the other hand, if your Victoria oral surgery only requires a local anesthetic, you might be able to drive yourself.
