How do I prepare for gum/implant procedures?
There is not much to do in preparation for your gum procedure. We will often give the needed prescriptions (to prevent infection, swelling, and pain) in advance so that you will not need to go to the pharmacy after your treatment. It is best to start the medicine on the morning of the treatment as directed.
It is also a good idea to have some soft foods on hand, for example, soups, mashed potatoes, eggs, apple sauce, small noodles, etc. Make sure that you do not have a big event or dinner planned for the night after your treatment.
