What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery is a bit vague and includes many procedures you’re probably familiar with and some that seem too simple to qualify as “surgery.” Almost any operation performed on your teeth, gums, jaw, and surrounding structures is considered oral surgery. This means that invasive procedures like tooth extractions and root canals are oral surgery, but so are less invasive procedures like dental fillings and gum grafts.

How to prepare for oral surgery?

Different oral surgeries require different kinds of prep. That said, there are some general steps you can take to prepare yourself for any oral surgery:

  • Get Informed: take the time to discuss the procedure and process with your oral surgeon. Ask any questions you may have and provide any information you believe may be helpful.
  • Rest: Get plenty of sleep the night before the surgery. When your body is well rested, you’ll set yourself up for a more pleasant surgery experience.
  • Arrive Early: This gives you time to calm your nerves, ask any remaining questions, and fill out any last-minute paperwork.
