  1. The most important step to take is communicating with your dentist. Only by talking to a professional knowledgeable on your personal case will you be able to discuss procedure specifics. Your dentist or oral surgeon will be able to give you a step-by-step breakdown of what your appointment will be like, and how this surgery will help you.
  2. Do some research of your own to get better acquainted with the procedure. We’ve listed a few common types of oral surgery below so that you may peruse their descriptions.
  3. Take the correct precautions before your surgery: stock your fridge with soft foods and liquids you will be able to consume afterward, arrange for a friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointment, and take a day or two off work.
