How does the oral surgeon diagnose my oral condition?

The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery team uses a detailed oral exam along with on-site cone beam computed tomography (CT) scans to precisely diagnose problems in your teeth, gums, jaws, and nerves within this area. 

This advanced imaging can also help in the diagnosis of oral cancer, such as tumors in your throat, gums, tongue, and cheeks. If your diagnosis reveals that you need surgery, The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery team uses digital surgical planning to meticulously plan your procedure for predictable and reliable results. 

What should I do to prepare for oral surgery?

Before your surgery, The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery team gives you all the information you need to get ready for the procedure. Because oral surgery generally involves anesthesia and sedation, you'll likely need to fast prior to the procedure. 

Be sure to wear loose, comfortable clothing and sensible shoes to your oral surgery procedure because you may be a little disoriented after the procedure. It's not the time to wear wobbly heels!

In most cases, you also have to arrange for a family member or friend to drive you home after your procedure because the effects of the anesthesia and sedation can last for at least several hours following the procedure.
