When you visit Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, you may be uneasy about surgery or curious about how you will recover. We work hard to ensure that each and every patient is comfortable with the treatment process, and one of the best ways to ease your mind is to prepare for your post-surgical care before undergoing treatment. Our expert oral surgeons, Dr. Graves, Dr. Wilkinson, and Dr. Atkins, are extensively trained to provide you with the best oral and maxillofacial care possible. Once your procedure is done, however, it's important that you know how to provide yourself with high-quality care as well.
The instructions below are a helpful tool for preparing you for treatment. Typically, we provide every patient with general pre-operative instructions, which outline steps you need to take before your procedure. Following these instructions will help your procedure run as smoothly as possible. We also provide post-operative instructions more specific to each patient's procedure; these instructions contain suggestions for diet, activity, and pain management to help you recover comfortably and heal properly. Please review these instructions and contact us with any questions you have. We want to make sure you fully understand your instructions, and we are always happy to help.
