How to prepare for maxillofacial surgery

If opting for sedation or general anesthesia you should not drink or eat anything 6-8 hours prior to the surgery. Also, ensure to have someone to take you home after the procedure. Any prescribed medication should be taken with only a small sip of water.

After care : Bleeding: Most bleeding is usually under control by the time you leave. Some blood-tinged saliva or oozing may continue for a day. Pain: The doctor will prescribe medication to manage any pain you may experience. Swelling: This may occur immediately after the procedure. It may gradually increase over 1-3 days. Ice packs may control the swelling. Nausea: This may result from the anesthesia or pain medication. Diet: You should eat soft foods and drink liquids 1-2 days following the surgery. Hot and spicy foods should be avoided Oral hygiene: This should not be avoided. Brush your teeth as usual and use warm salt water to rinse the mouth after each meal. The surgical area should not be brushed for at least 4 days following the surgery. Activity: You can resume regular activities gradually after the first 2-3 days. This is because strenuous activities can promote bleeding. Fever: It is normal to have an elevated body temperature following the procedure for a day. Side effects: These are temporary and improve as healing progresses. They include an earache, restricted mouth opening, and discoloration of the skin, the temporary ache of the adjacent teeth and stretching or cracking at the mouth corners.
