What To Expect When You Need Oral Surgery

If you need oral surgery, Dr. Zalesky and our dental care team’s top priority is to ensure you are prepared for the procedure, have all of your questions answered, and know what to expect. 

Pre-Operative Consultation and Instructions

Before your oral surgery, we schedule a consultation with Dr. Zalesky. During pre-operative appointments, our dentist talks with patients about the recommended procedure. We gather all necessary medical history and information to ensure you are healthy enough to undergo oral surgery — especially if general anesthesia is required for the operation. 

We also provide you with some pre-operative care instructions, which might include starting an antibiotics regimen or taking other medications before your appointment. If general anesthesia is needed, we also provide you with instructions for restricting food before your appointment. 

During the Procedure

The length and process for each oral surgery differ depending on the type of procedure being performed. We always use only the highest quality medications and surgical tools available to ensure a smooth procedure and hasten your recovery. 

Post-Operative Care and Instructions

After oral surgery is complete, Dr. Zalesky provides patients with instructions for post-operative care and follow-up appointments, if necessary. 

Post-operative care might include things like taking antibiotics to eliminate an infection, pain medications if any swelling or pain is present, applying cold compresses, avoiding solid foods, irrigating a socket in your gums, or scheduling follow-up exams to ensure a normal recovery. 

If you experience severe pain, inflammation, infection, or other unusual symptoms following oral surgery, we recommend contacting our office immediately for a follow-up examination and treatment to address these symptoms.
