How Long Will I Stay in the Hospital After an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Posted on 1/2/2024 by Weo Admin

You can leave the hospital the same day after the surgery or wait for a few weeks, and we help you determine the circumstances for better planning.

After Wisdom Tooth Removal

Compared to other oral and maxillofacial procedures, wisdom tooth removal is a minor procedure, and the duration it takes to remove the teeth will depend on the complications of the surgery. You can go home the same day post-surgery but should avoid strenuous activities.

After Oral Cancer Surgery

Usually, you will stay in the hospital for a few days after oral cancer surgery, but severe cases will require a few weeks in the hospital for close monitoring. If the operation was a significant undertaking, you will be under intensive care for a day or so and be moved to a regular ward as you improve.

After Jaw Surgery

Jaw surgery may involve one or both jaws or your chin, impacting the average hospital stay. Patients with health complications will stay in the hospital for monitoring post-surgery, while the rest who will need post-anesthesia recovery stay overnight and leave the following day.

After Dental Implant

Following a dental implant under anesthesia, you can leave the hospital after treatment once you feel well enough. However, if you were under sedation, your surgeon would advise you to stay a little longer in the hospital for observation.

Reach Out for Professional Guidance

Whether you need oral and maxillofacial surgery for a wisdom tooth removal, oral cancer surgery, or dental implant, you should be ready to spend a few hours to days in the hospital for monitoring. Afterward, attend your follow-up visits to monitor how your wound is healing. If you experience any challenges in between, schedule an appointment immediately with us for prompt assistance.
