Some dental procedures involve surgery, for example inserting implants and pulling out wisdom teeth. In Los Algodones, you’ll find dental surgeons that will offer the same quality of service you’d expect in the US at lower prices.
However, surgery is always invasive, and you can improve your experience and the chances of long-term success of your dental procedure by preparing for your surgery.
Prior to Surgery
Speak to your dental surgeon and learn everything you can about the procedure you will be having. Ask questions and talk it through until you feel comfortable with what the risks are, the aftercare you will need and the medication you should purchase beforehand.
Plan your transportation prior to your surgery. When traveling to Los Algodones, make sure you have someone arrange proper transportation for you to and from the surgery. You will probably not be allowed to take a cab on your own. Also, you may need to stay in your hotel room for a certain period of time before going out or taking the flight back home. Many dental clinics offer free transportation to your appointments. This is a valuable service that saves you money and makes you feel more at ease.
If you smoke, you will need to stop smoking for a few days before and after the surgery. Smoking is one of the main causes of infections in post-surgery. It can also re-open the wound. You will also need to avoid alcohol as it will interfere with the effects of the medication.
Now is the time to ask about any dietary restrictions and to inform your doctor about any medications you are currently taking. It is very important for them to know about these as well as any supplements. They need to be aware of everything to be able to offer you the best care possible.
By following these simple tips, you’ll reduce your recovery time and decrease risks of complications.
