What Should You Avoid Before Oral Surgery?

We suggest our patients who come to us for oral surgery in Abu Dhabi follow the guidelines mentioned below, especially before anaesthesia:

  • Not having or drinking anything, even water, at least 6 hours ahead of your appointment
  • No smoking 12 hours prior to the surgery
  • Put on a loose-fitting outfit with easy to rolled-up sleeves
  • If you have any illness, like a sore throat or cold, inform your surgeon
  • Take your routine medicines
How Long Does Oral Surgery Take?

It depends on your case and can vary for each one. For example, one tooth extraction can take from 20 to 40 minutes. Contrarily, it takes 3 to 15 minutes for each in this process for additional teeth removal. However, incisors or smaller teeth require less time for the extraction than removing molars or larger teeth.

What Should You Avoid After Oral Surgery?

Stay away from tough, chewy or crunchy food at least for a week after your oral surgery.

  • Chips, pizza, and chewy bread
  • Crunchy vegetables and fruits
  • Steak, beef or meats
  • Popcorn and dried fruits
  • Citrus juice and fruits

Instead, you should consider soft foods like soft-cooked vegetables, soup, fruit smoothies, protein shakes, oatmeal, frozen yoghurt, mashed potatoes etc.

How Long After an Oral Surgery Can You Have Food?

Our surgeons will remove the gauze after an hour of the surgery, and after that, you are allowed to eat something but soft foods, as we have mentioned in the above passage, especially in the first 24 hours after oral and maxillofacial surgeries. But make sure to steer clear of hot drinks and dishes for a few days and avoid drinking from a straw for the first day at least to ensure the treated area heals quickly.

How Long Does Oral Surgery Take to Heal?

Typically, it takes around 3 to 4 weeks to heal the soft tissue completely. But if you take the medicines prescribed by our surgeon and give your treatment area at least 2 to 3 days to relax, you can come back to normal life after that.

How Will You Prevent Infection After an Oral Surgery?

Our oral surgeons suggest different instructions for our patients to follow after oral and maxillofacial surgery, from what to drink and eat to prescribed medications to maintaining oral health. Our experts also can guide you on how to clear and care for the treated area, such as:

  • Keep your gums and teeth clean
  • Rinse your mouth with salt water (lukewarm)
  • Never forcefully spit water; instead, let it drain automatically
  • Do not touch the blood clot. It will heal itself.
