At Columbia Basin Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, we strive to ensure our patients are both prepared and comfortable each time they visit our office in Kennewick, Washington. The best way a patient can prepare for surgery is by reviewing their pre- and post-operative instructions before their appointment. The instructions we provide are intended to help you understand exactly how to take care of yourself both before and after treatment to ensure your recovery is quick, easy, and virtually pain-free.
Typically, each patient will receive a set of pre-operative instructions with steps to follow so our surgeons can perform their surgery with no complications. Each patient's post-operative instructions will vary based on his or her procedure, and your instructions will apply directly to the surgery you are undergoing. It's important that you understand every step of the instructions given to you before your appointment so the doctor can answer any questions you may have before the surgery. Please contact our office if you have any questions after reading these instructions.
