Your initial appointment will usually be for consultation to explain your diagnosis and present treatment options. Occasionally surgery can be performed the same day however a complex medical history, complex oral surgical procedure or the use of general anesthesia usually requires a pre-operative evaluation with a second appointment to provide surgery.
