Oral Surgery Questions To Ask (That Help You Feel Better)

While you’re sitting in our chair smiling, nodding, and doing your best to act agreeable as our Cerritos, CA team explains that you need oral surgery, you may actually be thinking a whole bunch of questions that you really want answered. However, you don’t want to seem like you don’t trust us or our opinion. You might not want to come off as seeming nervous. You might feel a little bit like what you should do is go home, schedule the surgery you need, and then come on back in. What you need to do, however, is ask us everything you’re wondering about! It will allow you to truly feel confident and then feel completely relaxed about your upcoming procedure once you’re back in the comfort of your home.

Question: Is There An Alternative?

We know that one one of the very first questions you might think to yourself is whether there’s an alternative dental service to the oral surgery we have suggested. This is a perfectly reasonable question! Feel free to ask. We will be more than happy to explain why the answer is no and why surgery is necessary.

Question: Why Did This Happen?

Take time to ask your dentist why you ended up requiring oral surgery. Remember that we are always happy to talk with you about what has led to your need for particular procedures and what, if anything, you can do to avoid requiring surgery in the future. Sometimes, things just happen! In other cases, attention to preventive dental care can help you avoid damage that ends up requiring serious repairs.

Question: Is This Common?

We are well aware that part of you probably feels like you’re the only person walking the Earth who requires the oral surgery you need. As you might imagine, the dental services we offer are provided because they are required by a vast number of individuals seeking help for their oral health. Trust us when we tell you that you are certainly not the very first and you will not be the last! We will be happy to remind you of this detail.
