Prior to your surgical procedure:

  • you are advised not to smoke for at least 5 days before your procedure and for 7 days after your procedure. This is to minimise the risk of dry socket or infection.
  • x-rays will be used for your procedure. Most patients have provided their x-rays to their surgeon at time of consultation. Please remember to bring your x-rays on the day of your procedure. WE CANNOT PROCEED WITH YOUR SURGERY WITHOUT YOUR X-RAY.
  • if you have been provided with a prescription for pain relief and antibiotics please ensure that you have obtained these medications prior to your procedure.
  • we advise you to organise a responsible adult to accompany you home after your procedure. This is to ensure your safety and comfort.
