For patients undergoing surgery or other medical procedures, a pre-dental examination my be necessary to rule out any oral infection that may cause infections or threaten healing. We offer a quick evaluation and treatment plan, to make sure you are as healthy as possible prior to your procedure.

 

“Why do I need a pre-treatment dental evaluation?”

The success of your medical treatment or surgery is dependent upon your body being as healthy as possible. Active infections in the mouth such as dental abscess or gum disease can travel to the site of surgery and complicate healing.

Patients needing the pre-treatment dental evaluation include:

  • Cancer Radiation and Chemotherapy Patients
  • Joint Replacement Patients
  • Cardiac Patients requiring valve replacement.
  • Organ & Bone Marrow Transplant Patients
  • Patients who are Diabetic or Immunosuppressed

“What Can I Expect During My Evaluation?”

The evaluation will take 1 1/2 to 2 hours, and will include:

  • Dental history review
  • Dental X-Rays
  • Oral evaluation

We also offer sedation options to make your appointment painless and stress-free.

Following the evaluation, we will work to complete the treatment ASAP to clear you for your procedure. If you prefer to visit your personal dentist for treatment, just let us know. We are happy to forward the results from our evaluation to them so they can begin your treatment.

Upon completion of your surgical or therapeutic procedure, it is important that you maintain optimal oral hygiene to minimize the risk of future infection. Maintenance includes:

  • Daily brushing and flossing with use of an antibacterial mouth rinse.
  • Professional teeth cleaning every 3 – 6 months
  • Dental recall examination every 6 months

By incorporating this into your overall health regimen. You can be assured that your procedure will be as successful as possible. We look forward to serving you.
