Getting Ready for Oral Surgery

There are a few tips and tricks, as well as some steps to take prior to having surgery. While some of the steps do not have to be taken if the person is only getting a local anesthetic.

If you're being put to sleep for your surgery, it is important to not eat or drink anything, including water for at least eight hours or more prior to surgery. Those that are just having the local numbing shouldn't eat or drink anything at least 1 to 2 hours before surgery.

Get a good night's rest! If you're not well rested, you may have more anxiety and fear the next day. Brush and floss your teeth before the appointment. It will make things easier to have cleaner teeth during the procedure, as well as after. Reduce the amount of tartar and plaque buildup.
