Surgery of benign changes in the mouth
Surgery of benign changes in the mouth is usually performed to remove unwanted growths, such as cysts, tumors, warts or other changes in the lining of the mouth. This procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis, under local anesthesia.
Before surgery, the doctor will examine your mouth and may recommend additional tests such as a biopsy to confirm the nature of the changes. If you decide to have the operation, the doctor will explain what you can expect during the procedure, how long it will take and what instructions you will receive after the operation.
After surgery, you will need to follow your doctor's instructions to ensure a quick and successful recovery. This may include the use of analgesics, limiting food and drink for the first few hours after surgery, and careful cleaning and maintenance of the mouth to prevent infections.
It is important that you follow all of your doctor's instructions and have regular check-ups to ensure that your condition is properly monitored and treated after surgery.
