Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring your insurance card or policy information.
- Completed Patient Registration
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit and remain in the building throughout the entire surgical procedure.
A preoperative consultation and examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink for 6 (six) hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, bisphosphonates (Zometa, Aredia, Fosamax, Boniva, Actonel), etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken a digital panorex x-ray, you may request that they forward them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, full-cranial cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of oral surgery. This technology provides full-cranial, detailed 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of implantology, airway assessment, oral and orthognathic surgery and other dental procedures. Undistorted, anatomically correct views of the jaws, teeth and facial bones along with cross-sectional (bucco-lingual), axial, coronal, sagittal, cephalometric and panoramic views are easily generated. Three-dimensional images enable a level of accuracy in patient care not possible with 2-D technologies.
The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center of Oregon is committed to providing innovative, high-quality care to our patients. The addition of cone-beam CT technology is just one more way we are able to demonstrate this pledge.
