Many patients who come to our office for treatment have never undergone surgery before and therefore aren't sure what to expect with regard to their care. At Amarillo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we like to make sure that all of our patients feel prepared for their pre- and post-surgical care so they can feel completely comfortable when they come in for treatment. Below, we have provided sets of instructions in English and Spanish for various procedures that we offer at our office. Each set of post-operative instructions contains specific guidelines to follow to ensure your recovery goes smoothly and that you are back to your routine in no time.
We also typically provide patients with general pre-operative instructions so they can adequately prepare for surgery. When patients follow these instructions, it's less likely that complications will occur, additional procedures will be necessary, or rescheduling will be suggested. It's important to review both pre- and post-operative instructions before treatment because it ensures you have time to get any of your questions answered before your procedure. We encourage you to contact our Amarillo office if you have any questions or feel you do not understand your instructions.
