If you go to Aventura for oral surgery, thinking ahead always helps. You would want to be relaxed and completely focused on your recovery, and as comfortable as possible after your procedure.

Pick Up Your Medication Ahead of Time

As we said, following your procedure, you must be fully focused on recovering. As a result, you won't be allowed to go outside to get medication. Before your treatment, make sure to stop by the pharmacy to pick up any prescriptions you'll need for the healing period.

Make a Stop at the Grocery Store

Following oral surgery, your diet will be fairly restricted. So, make sure you choose the correct foods to support your recovery! Only purchase healthy liquids like water, tea, milk, and protein drinks when you’re out shopping. Additionally, you must limit yourself to softer foods for a few days.

Choose the Appropriate Clothing

Wearing comfortable clothes is recommended for your operation. Avoid wearing long sleeves since the dentist will need to use your arms to take your vital signs, administer an IV, or check your blood pressure.

Have a Restful Night's Sleep

Prior to your procedure, it’s always crucial to have a good night's sleep. To prevent putting strain on your mouth, ask your dentist whether there are any recommended sleeping positions (if it’s relevant to your particular surgery).
