Preparing for a periodontal surgery
A Miami Dentist at Advanced Family Dental will put you through what you must do before the surgery. For instance, if you’re currently on medications such as pain relievers, aspirin, and blood thinners, you may be required to stop them taking them a few weeks to the surgery. Drinking alcohol and smoking should be avoided at least a day before the procedure.
Your dentist may prescribe an antibiotic prior to the procedure. This will minimize your risk of getting an infection.
It is important that you make arrangements for someone to drive you home after the surgery. A periodontal surgery is carried out under anesthesia. The sedation may also affect your ability to drive home after the procedure. At Advanced Family Dental, we are committed to giving you the best care post-surgery.
