At Loudoun Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we make every effort to ensure that you receive the best possible care in our office. After any type of oral surgery, there will be a period of healing. In addition, most procedures require some sort of preparation. To help you through your surgical and healing processes, we invite you to look through the pages below. Our surgeons and team can also work with you to review these surgical instructions during your first consultation and follow-up appointments.
Though each procedure progresses differently, many oral surgery and maxillofacial procedures will be accompanied by some degree of discomfort. For severe discomfort, use the medication prescribed to you by Dr. Andrew Bluhm, Dr. Steve Dorsch or Dr. Gene Vandervort. We often recommend returning to Loudoun Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for a post-operative visit to ensure that you are healing properly. A follow-up visit will be scheduled in advance to your treatment day. In the meantime, remember to maintain a healthful diet, observe rules for proper oral hygiene, and visit your general or family dentist for regular check-ups.
We invite you to read and follow the instructions below carefully. However, every procedure and patient are different, and not all these instructions may apply to your unique situation. Common sense will often dictate what you should do; when in doubt, however, follow these guidelines or call Loudoun Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at any time for further instruction or clarification about your oral surgery in Ashburn or Leesburg, Virginia.
