First Oral Surgeon Visit

What to expect on your first Oral Surgery visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. The consultation visit enables us to tailor your care to your specific medical, dental and social needs. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays, other imaging, labs and studies, if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the consultation visit.

A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, severe asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, use of bisphosphonate medications, prior radiation to the head and neck, uncontrolled seizure disorder, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).

X-Rays

If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays or other images, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary they can be taken at our facility. If not covered by your insurance, payment for any necessary additional images will be your responsibility.

Special Note:

Ideally, smoking should be avoided for 6-8 weeks prior to your anesthetic and surgical procedure. Smoking delays healing, may promote “dry sockets” (if you are having dental extractions) and makes your airway more “reactive,” increasing risk during anesthesia.

Relax. We understand your natural fears and will make every attempt to provide you with a pleasant experience. Please feel free to call us Fantuzzo - Oral, Maxillofacial & Dental Implant Surgery Phone Number 585-737-6973 with any questions or concerns.
