What to Do Before Oral Surgery
Usually, it is recommended that you do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before surgery if you are being put to sleep. This is a precaution that is always taken.
Make sure that you brush and floss your teeth completely before the procedure to remove any plaque or build up that might be in the area that can get into the wound site when the procedure is done.
Make sure to have someone to bring you back home after the procedure. This is because you might not be feeling well enough to drive yourself, especially after being put to sleep. Make sure that you do not smoke for a period of time before having the surgery done. This keeps the mouth clean for the procedure.
