We recommend a certain pattern of behaviour before and after surgery to help you get prepared for the surgery and ensure the best possible results. We will completely inform you about these precautions and provide you with detailed instructions during our consultations.
If possible, please bring your complete medical/dental referral documents and x-rays to your consultation appointment.
If you have a major surgery under sedation or general anesthesia, please make sure you have an accompanying person picking you up. It is generally not safe or advisable to drive after surgery.
There is no problem with eating before surgery if it is conducted under local anesthesia. For general anesthesia or sedation however, you should not eat, drink or smoke six hous prior to surgery. For children, those times may be different. Our anesthesiologist will inform you accordingly.
Please inform us about any medication you take regularly during your initial consultation. We will inform you about postponing any medication before or after surgery.
