Surgery - Oral & Maxillofacial 44 years experience
It depends: It depends on the type of surgery and your general health. If done in the hospital requiring general anesthesia there are anesthesia guidelines that need to be followed. If done in the office it depends on the type of anesthesia and your health. Oral and maxillofacial surgeon can obtain any test necessary for your safety and outcome from your surgery.
