    In order to make sure that we can perform your procedure, you must follow a few preoperative rules. First of all, make sure you are on time! We would love to start on time so we don’t inconvenience our other patients and so that you are guaranteed our best service. Don't drink any water or eat any food 6 hours prior to the surgery. Doing this could prevent us from being able to perform the operation. 


    Oral surgery is similar to surgery on other parts of the body in that it requires great attention to postoperative instructions. Unlike our preoperative instructions, the postoperative rules are numerous. We have put together a complete list of postoperative instructions you can read here.
