how to prepare for oral surgery Murray

When it comes to preparing for oral surgery,  the valued patients of Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS are given 6 essential directives to get them through from start to finish.

First, Choose Wisely
Understanding the details of a procedure helps you achieve the optimal outcome. This important knowledge about your dental experience opens up a conversation with our staff. Which leads us to the next instruction:

Second, Question Up Front
We want to answer these 4 important questions:
-What are the alternatives to having it done?
-Why is this the best option?
-How many visits should I expect?
-What kind of complications or risks are there?
(After you’ve asked your questions, we’ll ask ours.)

Third, Update Records
This is not just for billing purposes. The conscientious staff here at Salt Lake Dental Care – Clint Blackwood DDS want to prepare for any possibility. Making sure your personal contact information is up-to-date helps us convey essential specifics to you post-procedure.

Fourth, Be Honest
While Dr. Clint Blackwood has a gentle, helpful touch, we find that slight pinches and cramping and other pain can develop while you are in our chair. When the doctor asks if you are comfortable, please be honest. We understand it is difficult to communicate clearly when your mouth is inundated with tools. Experience has helped us to read your cues. Let us make you as comfortable as possible.

Fifth, Rest and Recover
After any extensive procedure, it is important to allow a period of rest for your mouth. This rest period may vary depending on how the procedure goes. This instruction will be given to you along with any other needed recovery instructions. Follow these as issued.
