Oral Surgical Exam
A preoperative exam is a critical part of good care. It not only allows us to see what needs to be done but it is very important to review your medical history and what medications you might be taking. Many medications interact with drugs used for sedation.
Preoperative EKG and blood pressure screen help to identify any underlying problems that could interfere with your treatment.
Reviewing the procedure ahead of time gives everyone involved a chance to answer questions and discuss things like "will I be swollen and for how long" "How long will I be out of work or school"
Pre operative instructions will be given to the patient written down as well as orally. A chance to discuss the procedure ask questions and sometimes see videos that help to explain whats happening are available.
Review of the patients insurance can also be done preoperatively
