The Importance of Detailed Notes About Pain When Talking with the Oral Surgeon
Posted on 5/23/2018 by Vladana Babcic Tal DMD
When you come in to talk to us about oral surgery, whether it's a planned procedure or an emergency surgery for trauma, it's important that you let us know about the amount of pain you're in. There are a few different reasons why you should take detailed notes about your pain levels and where the pain is located before and even after your surgery. This information can be very helpful to us when we're planning your procedure. It Tells Us Where the Pain IsWhen you're having any oral surgery done, it helps us to know where you're feeling pain. We may have planned to work on one area, but if you're experiencing pain somewhere else, we need to know. It can indicate that an infection has spread or that you have more going on than what we thought. If we know you have another issue, we can make certain you get the antibiotics you need or plan to take care of multiple problems at once. It Lets Us Know if the Problem Has WorsenedIf you rated your pain as a four when you had your consultation, but now rate it as a seven or eight, it tells us that the pain has gotten worse. Sometimes, that's to be expected, especially if your surgery is a few days after the consultation. Other times, though, that tells us that something has changed with your condition. Knowing how the pain has changed can tell a lot about what's wrong. Has it gone from a throbbing pain to one more like jolts of electricity? Has it spread across your mouth? Does the pain seem to come and go, and can you connect that behavior to anything? All of this will help us determine what's going on and what we may need to do during your surgery. Not sure what to record about your pain before your procedure? Give us a call and we'll let you know....
