In addition to the multitude of patient information that we offer on our website, we also provide patients with instructions for both pre-operative and post-operative care. It is crucial to read and completely understand these instructions before undergoing treatment, as they provide specific guidelines to follow to ensure optimal surgical results. The team at Coastal Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center is dedicated to patient satisfaction, which is why each patient will receive the proper instructions to help them heal quickly and properly. We'd like to stress the importance of understanding every step of these instructions before you undergo your procedure so that when you are discharged, you are already aware of everything you need to do when you get home.
Typically, each patient will receive general pre-operative instructions with steps to follow before coming into our office on the day of your surgery appointment. Additionally, depending on the specific procedure, patients will also receive post-operative instructions with guidelines for proper care to achieve a speedy and comfortable recovery. It's important to read both sets of instructions before surgery so you may have any questions answered by your oral surgeon before treatment. If you have read your instructions and feel that they are unclear, or there is something you don't understand, please contact our office as soon as possible. We are happy to speak with you and clarify any part of the instructions that you don't understand.
