6 Things You Should Know Before Having Oral Surgery in San Diego

how to prepare for Oral Surgery in San Diego

When it comes to preparing for oral surgery in San Diego,  the patients of Marcos Ortega DDS are given 6 important instructions to get them through from start to finish.

First – Choose Wisely
Understanding the pros and cons of a procedure helps you attain the ideal outcome. This essential knowledge about your dental experience opens up a conversation with our staff.

Second – Question Up Front
Before calling 619-295-4545 to schedule an appointment for oral surgery in San Diego, please schedule a consultation 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?

Third – Update Records
This is not just for billing purposes. The conscientious staff here at Marcos Ortega DDS want to prepare for any emergency. Making sure your personal contact information is up-to-date helps us convey important information to you post-procedure.

Fourth – Be Honest
While Dr. Marcos Ortega has a gentle, responsive touch, we find that slight pinches and cramping and other pain can ensue while you are in our chair. When the doctor asks if you are comfortable during the oral surgery in San Diego, please be honest. We understand it is problematic 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 required recovery instructions. Follow these as issued.
