If so, you are probably wondering what to expect after your procedure. You might wonder if you will be comfortable, how long it will take you to heal, and if there are any special steps you need to take so that you can enjoy a quick recovery. Fortunately, our oral surgeons and our staff will help you every step of the way. Our team is here to answer your questions and educate you on what to expect before, during, and after your treatment.

Quality Oral Healthcare You Can Trust

Our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality oral healthcare to patients in our community. We take great strides to ensure that our patients feel valued and appreciated. Using the latest technology and innovative techniques, we strive to ensure quality oral health procedures as comfortably and efficiently as possible. When patients require treatments such as bone grafts, dental implants, reconstructive procedures, and jaw surgery, our oral surgeons will develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. The course of treatment for each patient will vary based on the state of his or her oral health and his or her unique needs.

Aftercare Guidance for Oral Surgery

When a patient visits our practice, we provide a thorough consultation and examination to determine how to approach the patient’s needs. Because we value patient education, our team will explain which procedure(s) is necessary and how it will benefit the patient. We invite patients to ask questions and voice any concerns they may have. After surgery is completed, patients will be given a packet of detailed instructions. The information provided will be determined by the type of treatment a patient received. Patients will be guided on how to care for the exposed surgical site and how to manage any discomfort. Instructions will also be provided if any dietary restrictions are necessary.

After a procedure, patients are welcome to call our office for questions or clarifications. To schedule an appointment, call Central Oklahoma Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates today.
