Because a large portion of each tooth is above the gumline, many dental treatments can be completed without surgical techniques and incisions into the gum tissue. However, we may recommend oral surgery to restore your oral health if you are in need of a more complex or intensive treatment. While most dental surgery falls into the category of out-patient procedures, the fact remains that oral surgeries are involved procedures and require specific preparation and aftercare. Our dentist and team have provided some surgical aftercare instructions in an effort to provide you with safe, comfortable care:

We encourage you to review these instructions before your procedure and invite you to contact our team if you have any questions or concerns. Dr. Victor J. Dongo and our team want to ensure that you have a smooth, uncomplicated surgery and recovery.

We also recommend that you contact our office if you have any preexisting medical conditions or other factors of which we should be aware when planning and providing your treatment.
