Preparing For Surgery

The team at the Thornhill Smile Centre have provided the information below to help you get ready for your All-on-4 transformation. In addition to these instructions please consider these Drugs To Avoid.

THREE WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

Stop smoking
In certain cases, you may be asked to stop smoking sooner. Smoking can severely interfere with healing by decreasing blood flow and may prevent the wounds in the mouth from healing properly. DO NOT resume smoking after surgery until you are given permission to do so.
Smoking causes severe complications

Stop drinking
There should be no excessive alcohol consumption immediately prior to surgery and for a minimum of 5 days prior to your procedure. Alcohol causes an increase in bleeding, depresses immune functions, increases the chances of infection, and may interfere with wound healing.

Check your refrigerator
It is important to maintain a healthy diet. Your teeth and mouth are the gateway for food to your body and what you eat affects your overall health. You will be on a soft modified diet tailored to your surgical outcome. It is important that you follow these instructions!

It’s beneficial to stock up on protein supplements like BOOST or Ensure. Various softer foods like eggs, fish, well cooked pastas, soup/broths, and yogurt are great ideas.

TWO WEEKS BEFORE SURGERY

Stop 2 weeks BEFORE until 2 weeks AFTER surgery:

  • All Aspirin and Ibuprofen products. Unless instructed otherwise.
  • All anti-inflammatory drugs (i.e. Ibuprofen) and anti-coagulants (Please consult your physician prior to discontinuing).
  • If a medication is in question, call our office.

These products may cause excessive bleeding.

START TWO WEEKS BEFORE AND CONTINUE FOR TWO WEEKS AFTER SURGERY(strongly recommended)

  • Take a Multivitamin tablet daily. Most multivitamins contain some form of vitamin E, however this is acceptable to take prior to surgery. We do ask that you refrain from taking additional vitamin E.
  • Take Vitamin A –8,000-10,000 units, twice a day. This has well-documented beneficial effects on surgical healing and will also fuel your immune system.
  • Take Vitamin C –1,000 mg., twice a day. This is essential for collagen synthesis, which is part of normal wound healing. Your need for Vitamin C will increase after surgery.
  • Take Vitamin D–1,000 units, once a day. Vitamin D is known to help the body absorb calcium, and it plays a role in bone health.

ONE WEEK BEFORE SURGERY

GET PROPER NUTRITION AND REST: (1 week BEFORE until 2 weeks AFTER procedure):

  • Eat healthy, regular meals.
  • Eat 2 fruits and 3 green vegetables daily (per diet instructions)
  • Eat a small amount of protein at each meal.

IMPORTANT! Your diet can aid healing remarkably and reduce swelling and pain!
