Pre-Surgery Assessments are highly recommended for medically compromised patients who are scheduled for major surgery or cancer treatment, e.g. radiation or chemotherapy. It ensures that the risk of oral complications in the middle of, or post-treatment are minimised.
Our dental specialists/ dentists will find out the details of your medical and dental history, and review your dental x-ray.
Our dental specialists/ dentists will conduct a physical examination of your dentition, jaw and mouth, and will discuss (if required) treatment options and timelines in conjunction with the schedule of upcoming major surgery or cancer treatment. The entire consultation should take less than an hour.
Depending on the results of the examination and x-rays at your dental assessment, our dental specialists/ dentists may clear you to proceed with your scheduled medical procedure or treatment.
On the other hand, if dental treatment is required, we will do our best to ensure that your dental treatment is completed in a timely manner.
Follow Up Care
If there are no pre-existing dental conditions that need to be addressed before the major surgery or cancer treatment, the follow up is done after medical treatment is completed.
Good oral hygiene – flossing, brushing and regular dental check-ups is encouraged.
|Consultation||$80 – $200|
