Before Dental Surgery Care Tips

before-dental-surgery-care-tipsWhat To Do Before Dental Surgery

Do not eat or drink before surgery for the amount of time recommended by Dr. Phillips.

Brush and floss your teeth before you arrive.

Do not wear make-up or lipstick. Bring some lip moisturizer for after surgery.

Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes.

Fill your fridge with soft food that requires little chewing for the first few days.

Arrange for someone to pick you up after surgery and to look after you and/or your children for the rest of the day.

Treatment with dental implants is a surgical procedure and requires prior evaluation by Dr. Phillips to make sure your dental and general health permits dental implant treatment.
